This brugmansia plant in Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory has flowers about the length of my hand and is quite amazingly beautiful. Its graceful curves are hard to capture in a photo. One of the very odd things about it is that occasionally a different color flower will occur on the same plant, at least on this peachy pink kind. You can see a yellow one in the background, and it is on the very same stem as the others. Brugmansia, or angel trumpet, is in the datura family and I believe is poisonous. But oh, so beautiful!
