Trumpet Flower In Full Bloom in Cape Haze, Florida - Weeping Ficus Everywhere

Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty

Cape Haze is a small community in Charlotte County just north of Boca Grande. It is a residential community on Placida Harbor that is far enough removed from everything to be 'other worldly'. The times are changing and there is more and more development taking place in the area. I decided to take a drive through the neighborhood and found some really wonderful plants and trees growing in the various yards and lining the streets. Since I absolutely love plants, I wanted to share these with you!

This is an Angel's Trumpet with magnificent yellow flowers! All parts of the plant are deadly, but beautiful things often are.....




 These beautiful Weeping Ficus Trees are everywhere in Cape Haze - they are so magical, with their outstretched arms welcoming you to their home!

Wow.  I just saw this flower at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, S.C.  I asked someone what it was, (it was huge) and she said Angel's Trumpet.  She also said it was an hallucinogenic.  EEK.  I didn't touch it.

Beautiful flowers!!  Wow!!  Deadly though?  Really?  That's pretty scary...I wouldn't have it around if that was the matter how pretty!

Susie - Totally deadly - all parts - seems some teens used to try to make psychedelic tea out of them and many died because of it -
