I have seen these `Dhaturas` at many places during` Narmada -Parikrama` in M.P.state and the same is known as Dhatura only.
The black sp. has medicinal uses, and is poisonous as everybody
knows.
however this needs to be confirmed.

But this is not Brugmansia. This is species of Datura Tanay. In tamil it is called Karu oomathaai (last two pictures)

These are garden cultivars of Datura metel, with names like Datura
metel 'Flore Pleno', Datura metel 'Blackcurrant Swirl' etc. with
double and triple flowers.
