Garden: Angel Trumpet at Night

When I turned on the porch light one evening this gorgeous Angel Trumpet bloom caught my attention. It was even more spectacular at night than it was during the daytime. For the remainder of the plant's blooming period, I made it a point to go outside each evening to admire it.

They are truly beautiful. But keep in mind that they are poisonous as well. Don't touch it!! Genus of the plant family Solanaceae. Contains shrubby species also known as Datura candida (angel's trumpet) and others in garden cultivation (D. sanguinea, D. suaveolens). Contain tropane alkaloids, neurotoxic hallucinogens. A bizarre, beautiful and very dangerous plant. Also comes in pink, yellow, orange, peach, blue and purple, doubles and triples.

These are not brugmansia, they are datura's. They are related to brugmansia's but not the same.... And yes, they are invasive. The way to stop them from "spreading" is to take the pods off when they appear.
