DATURA

Commonly known as Angels' trumpets

(Now renamed BRUGMANSIA) All JUL-SEPT

HIGHLY TOXIC. Toxicity varies with the seasons.

Linnaeus classified these plants with Datura. They were transferred to Brugmansia in 1805 and during the next 168 years they went back and forth in lists. In 1973 they were placed by TE Lockwood definitively as Brugmansia where they have remained.

All species are extinct in the wild, though because of their popularity in cultivation they exist widely as introductions.
