I recently found out that it is a Pink aurea, not Aurea Pink. I was told it isn't a pure aurea by someone who knows brugmansia. If grown from a cutting each year, it will not get very tall. Probably 5-6 ft. in zone 5. My plant originated from NHE. It reminds me of a Frosty Pink with long tendrils and great fragrance.
