Description

I was aware that this plant was some kind of poisonous but unclear how poisonous it was until I researched it. I did hold it up for an up-close picture but didn’t want to touch it more than I had to, nor did I try to smell it. According to Wikipedia it does flower (like the picture posted) throughout the summer. The flowers are trumpet-shaped white, soft yellow and creamy color. The leaves are green to dark green about 3-8 inches long, smooth and irregularly undulated. The flowers open at night, emitting a pleasant fragrance and are fed upon by nocturnal moths.
