Angel’s trumpets (Brugmansia) is a genus of seven species of flowering plants in the family Solanaceae. They are woody trees or shrubs with pendulous flowers and have no spines on their fruit. Their large, fragrant flowers give them their common name of angel’s trumpets, a name sometimes used for the closely related genus Datura. The name refers to the large, pendulous, trumpet-shaped flowers, which come in shades of white, yellow, pink, orange, green, or red. They can reach heights of 10 feet to 36 feet. Flowers may be single, double, or more. Linnaeus first classified these plants as part of Datura with his 1753 description of “Datura arborea.” Then in 1805, C. H. Persoon transferred them into a separate genus, Brugmansia, named for Dutch naturalist Sebald Justinus Brugmans. For another 168 years, various authors placed them back and forth between the genera of Brugmansia and Datura, until in 1973, with his detailed comparison of morphological differences, T.E. Lockwood settled them as separate genus, where they have stayed unchallenged since.
