Brugmansia ..... Angel's Trumpet

 A night scented Brugmansia.........

 Flowering now with a heavenly tropical perfume released at dusk.

An absolute favourite since first discovered, growing in our Tropical Kenyan Garden.

From the Solanaceae familyBrugmansias are woody trees or bushes with pendulous,  not erect, flowers that do not have spines on their fruit.

Datura species are herbaceous bushes with erect, not pendulous, flowers and most do have spines on their fruit.
