WANTED: Hardy Brugmansias for Project (dseuss,bmarsh,etc)

Hi All-

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:

Betty Marshall
Dr. Seuss
Charles Grimaldi
Becca Lynn
Brugmansia sanguinea

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.

Thank You-

Seattle, WA

Welcome Mark,
It's a bad time for sending cutting. Freezing weather will kill them.
I don't look in the exchange forum very often during this time of the year.
Jump over to the discussion side and introduce yourself.
We are friendly and want bite (hard) LOL
