Angel’s Trumpet

These plants are the size of a bush or tree and produce large pastel-colored flowers that point down. The strength, or the amount of poison in each plant, varies according to its growing conditions. For instance well-cared-for plants may be more toxic than neglected ones or vice versa. Teens eat the flowers or boil the seeds to make tea.

Signs of poisoning include:
  • Dilated pupils
  • Confusion
  • Dry, warm skin
  • Inability to urinate
  • Drowsiness
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Severe thirst
  • Constipation
  • Anxiety
