Also known as Angel's Trumpets, brugmansias are flowering plants belonging to the family Solanaceae. They are native to the subtropical regions of South America as well as southeastern Brazil. The brugmansias are eudicots that grow into large shrubs or small trees with tan, slightly rough barks, usually reaching heights of three to eleven meters.

The moniker "Angel's Trumpet" is believed to be a reference to the brugmansia's large pendulous trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom into 14-50 cm long and 10-35 cm wide showy natural ornaments. With single or double varieties, the brugmansia flowers bear a delicate lemony scent and are usually white, yellow, pink, orange, or red in color. The leaves on the other hand are alternate, covered with fine hairs, and are generally big with sizes ranging from 10-30 cm long and 4-18 cm broad. All body parts contain poison in levels dangerous to humans and animals even capable of causing pupil diliation and/or anisocoria on contact.
