I discovered these amazing flowers in my sister in laws garden yesterday late afternoon. I photographed them in light rain and bad light.
They are known as Angels trumpets or Angel stars as you will see from one of the versions that from below they are star shaped. Their botanical name is Brugmansia and are highly poisonous. just touching them can cause numbness in the fingers for a few hours. They grow on huge bushes and the flowers range from 6"-20" tall and 6" wide. These were about 8" high. I found them difficult to photograph because of their size and huge leaves. They enjoy warm days and cool nights and are tropical.
They come in various colours of White, peach, pink,orange or yellow. Some bushes display up to two colours . This one had white and peach together.
have a nice day
