Brugmansia ×candida (Solanaceae)
Brugmansia ×candida is an evergreen shrub growing 10 to 20 feet tall. Young stems, leaves and calyx are almost glabrous or sparsely hairy in some forms. The downy, ovate leaves are very variable in size, reaching a maximum of about 16 inches long. This Angel's Trumpet grows fast and upright, often forming an umbrella-like canopy under which huge, 9-14 inch trumpet shaped flowers are produced.
All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested or absorbed through the mucous membranes. Although the plant is poisonous, natives in Brazil smoke the leaves for a strong narcotic effect that it is said to relieve asthma.
