More Angel Trumpets...

By now, I'm sure you've all seen my yellow Angel's Trumpets.... But I have one more plant that I planted a little after those.... It never flowered until last night.... but then today, the flower closed up.... So tonight, I went out in the dark and grabbed a few shots.... Beautiful! I was scared this plant may not even make it... I planted it on top of an old stump that I found buried in the yard... It took it a long time to get a good foothold, but it finally has and it is going nuts now! Excuse the insect damage to the leaves... I have a few catterpillars going nuts on it... I think I like these white flowers even more than the yellow ones! I wish that ya'll could smell them.... It is amazing walking out the door at night....

Hi...

Those Angel's Trumpets...are they sometimes commonly refered to as Devil's Trumpet as well?

If so, they are also known as Devil's Shoestring...

They grow wild in many places & are often mistaken for honeysuckle... but the variety I am refering to a highly narcotic & should never be around children due to their halucinagetic properties...

I would appreciate a responce so that I can add this new name to my notes if need be.

Not sure about the other names, but Angel trumpets are highly toxic...

Awesome flowers. Did you bleach those before taking that photo?
