“Brugmansia is a genus of seven species of flowering plants in the family Solanaceae (tomato, peppers and eggplant family). They are woody trees or shrubs, with pendulous flowers. Their large, fragrant flowers give them their common name of angel's trumpets. Brugmansia species are amongst the most toxic of ornamental plants. All seven species are known only in cultivation or as escapes from cultivation, and no wild plants have ever been confirmed. It is suspected that their extinction in the wild is due to the extinction of some animal which previously dispersed the seeds, with human cultivation having ensured the genus's continued survival.” - Wikipedia

Available colours include beige (sand), desert rose (dusty pink), magenta (beet pink), burgundy (slightly darker than magenta), terracotta, ochre (mustard), navy, black, white, coral gradient (shown on ear) as well a green gradient.
**NOTE** Hand dyed colours may vary, specifically gradient options may graduate to different heights in lace. As we attempt to make them as close as possible to our samples in images, please take this into consideration.
