Brugmansia vulcanicola, ( = "the volcanic-soil-favouring angel's trumpet" ) is a shrub or small tree belonging to the genus Brugmansia of tribe Datureae in subfamily Solanoideae of the nightshade family, Solanaceae.


Brugmansia vulcanicola forms a shrub or small tree reaching 4 m (13 ft) in height. The pendent, tubular / trumpet-shaped flowers belong to the smallest of all Brugmansia at 15 to 22 cm (6 to 9 in). They also have the shortest corolla peaks at 0.5 to 1.5 cm (0.20 to 0.59 in). The flowers can be found in shades of red, yellow, and pink.[1]


They are endemic to the Andes mountains of Colombia and Ecuador at elevations of 2,800 to 3,300 m (9,200 to 10,800 ft).[1]


All parts of Brugmansia vulcanicola are poisonous, containing tropane alkaloids.[2][3]
