Extinct in the Wild,[1]
although like the other members of its genus its survival has been ensured by its popularity as an ornamental plant.


Brugmansia insignis are shrubs or small trees reaching up to 3 to 4 m (10 to 13 ft) in height. The large, nodding, funnel-shaped flowers come in shades of white and pink. The flowers have a shape very similar to Brugmansia suaveolens, but can be differentiated by their long corolla at the edge 3 to 6 cm (1.2 to 2.4 in), and by the very narrow, extra long tubular extension at the base of the flower corolla that is even longer than in B. suaveolens.[2]


They are endemic to the upper Amazon region, at the eastern base of the Andes mountains of Peru.[2]


All parts of Brugmansia insignis are poisonous.[3][4]
