Hi all,

Could you give me the name of this flower please and are they scented? I thought I got a perfume as I passed but was unsure as there were other scented trees around.

regds,

Marianne

This is Brugmansia suaveolens (= Datura suaveolens) of family Solanaceae.
And the flowers are "sweetly fragrant"! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brugmansia_suaveolens
