The striking late summer floral displays of Brugmansia species (popularly known as Angel Trumpets) planted in the Latin American Ethnobotanical Garden are always visitor favorites. Pollinated at night by moths, their sweet fragrance is strongest during the evening hours. Brugmansia candida and other Amazonian species have been used for millennia by indigenous groups of South America for their hallucinogenic and medicinal properties, though all Brugmansia and Datura species are quite toxic and should be handled with care.
