    @ Bruce, I have been told it is quite poisonous. Heard tales of kids drying and smoking it. They became very ill. So I don't think I will try any tea.

    That is why I was asking. I have heard similar stories and never really knew what to believe. Thanks for the information!

    Actually Don it used to be Datura but they split the Devil's Trumpet(upward facing Flowers) and Angel's Trumpet (downward facing flowers) into 2 groups so now the Angel's trumpet is Brugmansia. I really like the yellow much better than the pink, it has the most wonderful evening fragrance

    Wow - if I were a butterfly, I know where I'd live. What a lovely yard, Cin!
