Q: I have been looking through your picture valts looking for "brugmansia" picks, but all I can find are white, orange,green... I'm trying to find out if all of the "tree brugmansia" are Hallucinogenic, because there is (what I beleave to be)a yellow brugmansia tree...how can I find out if it's really a brugmansia tree?

Thank you for your time...

A: Yes, there are Brugmansia trees with yellow flowers. To the best of my knowledge, all Brugmansia trees contain atropine and scopolamine, the chemicals responsible for their deliriant effect (I wouldn't exactly call them hallucinogenic).



Without seeing a picture of the tree you're talking about, it's impossible to make a positive identification, but there's not a lot of flowers that look like those of the Brugmansia and Datura plants. Below are links to two images of yellow-flowered Brugmansia trees:

Doing a Google image search on "Brugmansia" will show you additional pictures that might help.
