Solution : Angels Trumpet, more specifically Brugmansia, is a poisonous plant which is available in our country and I have seen this plant my times in different locations in my home town. Brugmansia has large and fragrant flowers and this is the most probable reason they are called angel’s trumpets.

This plant is very closely related to the genus Datura. They are either semi-woody or shrub plants with pendulous and large flowers and they do not have any spines on their fruits. This plant can be found in tropical areas of the world and since my country is a tropical country, this is found in my country as well.

This plant has some medical values and alkaloids found in this plant are used to make medicines like anti-asthmatic, anticholinergic and anaesthetic. Traditional usages of this plant include the treating of pains and aches.
