“Datura belongs to the classic "witches' weeds," along with deadly nightshade, henbane, and mandrake. Most parts of the plants contain toxic hallucinogens, and Datura has a long history of use for causing delirious states and death. It was well known as an essential ingredient of love potions and witches' brews.” (Wikipedia)
The trumpet-shape flower is pretty large (about 20cm and the opening at the mouth is around 10cm) so it’s quite impressive.
The photo was taken in January while walking in the mountains near the village of Duona in Taiwan (see my previous up-loads of the area if interested)

Thank you for your comments on my previous photos and hoping you will find the various photos of this flower attractive.
Have a pleasant evening. The week-end should be sunny and warm.
