Brugmansia × candida Pers., Syn. Pl. 1: 216 1805. (syn: Brugmansia arborea (L.) Lagerh.; Datura arborea Ruiz & Pav.; Datura × candida (Pers.) Voigt; Datura candida (Pers.) Saff.; Datura candida (Pers.) Pasq.);
Solanaceae Week: Brugmansia candida from California:
– Datura plants are usually herbaceous, flowers less than 15 cm long, usually erect and fruit smooth. Also the calyx splits horizontally (circumscissile) upper part falls off and only basal truncated part persists in fruit.
– Here are my pics of a street tree in Bangalore. I think this variety is called “Grand Marnier”, probably because of the orange tones.
– This does not look like Grand Marnier which is a cultivar of B. candida and has yellowish flowers http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/4146/ <http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/4146/>

Wish to share photographs of Datura Arborea (Brugmansia candida), seen flowering at Khandala on 25/6/2010
Lovely catch seen very common as wild in eastern Himalayas
We call Datura these days “vuvuzela“, which is being seen and heard everywhere during the last two weeks, of Football WM. Thank god, Datura doesn’t harm your ears.
Nice pictures. The Datura variations in my place, Mysore district, are very short. I had the impression they grow about 3-4 feet.
…, Datura you are talking about may be Datura Ferox which is a small herb with broadly ovate sinuate leaves & flowers on stout axillary peduncles. It is found in plains.
The pictures I have posted are of Datura arborea also called as Angle’s Trumpet. It has ovate leaves with flowers on drooping axillary peduncles. This plant is endemic to Chilli & Mexico. In Maharashtra it is found in hilly areas like Mahabaleshwar & Khandala-Lonavala.
What … is talking about, it could be herbaceous Datura either D. metal or D. innoxia.
I have attached the image of D. INNOXIA here.
Pls … confirm this species whether it is same or not.
Is this same species or different. I have seen this plant in Bryan’s park, Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu.
Pls refer the image.

Does not match with details at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brugmansia_arborea
I hope Brugmansia candida as Calyx is almost half as long as Corolla, and flowers are larger
B. arborea flowers are less than 6 cm long, calyx spathe like, split on one side and almost 3/4 as long as corolla
Thanks …, for validating and analysing possible ID.
I am not able to reach any conclusion myself. I have gone by the most popular Brugmansia spp. that are grown as ornamentals in Maharashtra. And we cannot rule out hybrids. Thus can be Brugmansia x candida. I will go with the ID that is resolved.
I will revise my notes shortly, to show the ID of B. candida as tentative.
Brugmansia × candida is correct, as suggested by …
You should not take it as tentative.
Thank you very much … I will revise my notes accordingly
Datura for Id 250309JM1 – indiantreepix | Google Groups:
In Krishna WS in A.P. on the bund around a big lake.
I checked in BSI Flora of Maharashtra.
But these doesn’t have pattern on white petals as in my post. Or do they?
Ok Ok you mean to say that the flowers depicted by you have patterns….brownish spot. So it might be some other flower?
Calyx is different.
Pl. see images at Brugmansia × candida Pers.
Petals are very long beaks and most flowers hanging in Brugmansia,
Petals with short beaks and flowers almost upwards in Datura.
Flowers appear to be hanging as can be seen from 2nd and 3rd images, with hanging buds (where flowers are not seen).
What about petals …, Observe here attaching B candida photo.
If you’re still with Brugmansia,
I will spend some more time on this description level.
I think the calyx is most crucial here, as petals are not in its prime.
I am still with Brugmansia × candida Pers., due to calyx shape.
