Angel Trumpets (brugmansia)

Although they are toxic, when admired from afar these tropical beauties are a delicate feast for the eyes. I find them rather melancholy, spineless as they are, with their pendulous flowers swaying to the slow rhythm of a tropical breeze.

    Brugmansia are one of my favourite plants. I have a yellow one growing in a pot, had it about a year and it’s flowered 4 times already! Such a beautiful plant.
