Toé Blooms“Angel’s Trumpets” are part of the Brugmansia family. These large flowers are native to the Andes and Amazon. Called Toé in the Upper Amazon, it is one of the extremely powerful admixture plants somtimes used in making Ayahuasca.
It is a stunningly beautiful but quite dangerous plant, used with great respect and reserve by highly experienced ayahuasceros. Every part of the plant is potent and is poisonous if used incorrectly.
These were in a private garden in Ollantaytambo, in the Sacred Valley area north of Cusco, Peru.
