Pretty hanging flower

Thai flowers - Brugmansia Candida
brugmansia candida thai flower The Brugmansia Candida, or 'White Angels Trumpet' is a popular perennial, easily distinguished by their unusual hanging flowers, hence the nick-name. The flowers are usually white, although can also be found in pink, yellow, orange and red. They have a distinctive and pleasant scent.

Native to the sub tropical regions on South America, the Brugmansia genus are actually large shrubs or small trees, reaching heights of 4-11 metres in height. They are quite poisonous if ingested, and admirers should be careful that they don't come into contact with eyes.

They flower in mid to late spring.

One or two flowers are left on this tree, they have passed their best but I think they are still quite a pretty flower...
