WANTED: Hardy Brugmansias for Project (dseuss,bmarsh,etc)
I'm new here. I've really enjoyed the site!
I purchased a 'Charles Grimaldi' a few years ago at a gardening convention and have really enjoyed it. So much so that I would like to try some of these in ground in my mild 8b climate.
I have been reading these boards and other sites and came up with a list of varieties that have reportedly good cold tolerance. They are:
others that have hardy blood:
(Charles Grimaldi) - 'Goldkrone', 'Goldrausch', 'Habanera', 'Luminosa', 'Marie Gerrits', 'Charisma', 'Feingold'
(Betty Marshall) - 'Kyle's Giant White'
If anybody has any of these and can spare a few cuttings for my project, I would happily send you postage or a pre-paid return envelope. I do have a few items to trade:
If I am missing any from my list that you have observed being particularly hardy, please let me know! A hardiness discussion would be great.
