Brugmansia suaveolens, Brazil's white angel trumpet, also known as angel's tears and snowy angel’s trumpet, is a species of flowering plant in the nightshade family Solanaceae, native to south eastern Brazil, but thought to be extinct in the wild.
The Brugmansia with the common name Angel Trumpet is a semi-tropical flowering shrub that grows as a bush or a tree. They are woody plants with large, fragrant pendulous flowers and they are show-stoppers. When people first encounter the beautiful trumpet flowers usually their jaws drop in awe of the exotic 10″ inch long flowers and powerful lemon scent. Angel’s trumpet is a perennial member of the Solanaceae / Nightshade Family (Calibrachoa -aka million bells) hailing from South America where they have been cultivated for thousands of years as both an ornamental and a medicinal plant. Under the right conditions, they can grow outdoors year-round and reach impressive heights of over 30′ feet tall. The highly poisonous foliage of the plants make them deer-resistant.
