Flores solitarias, muy grandes, en los nudos de las hojas cerca de los extremos de las ramas, actinomorfas, 5-meras; cáliz tubular; corola hipocrateriforme, mayormente con 5 dientes puntiagudos; estambres insertos cerca de la parte media del tubo, a veces geniculados, filamentos a veces pubescentes, anteras lineares con dehiscencia longitudinal; ovario cónico, 4-locular, estigma menudamente lobado, situado con las anteras. Fruto (no conocido en Nicaragua) una cápsula indehiscente, alargada o redondeada, inerme, leñosa.

Brugmansia incluye ca 5 especies nativas de Sudamérica, 2 de las cuales se encuentran en Nicaragua. Algunos autores incluyen estas especies en Datura, género que se diferencia por su forma de crecimiento, patrón de la ramificación, persistencia del cáliz, construcción del ovario, tipo de fruto, semillas, adaptaciones biológicas y otras características. Las especies son ampliamente cultivadas como plantas ornamentales. "Floripondio".
