These are called Angel Trumpets (of the Datura family) and they're hallucinogenic. I wouldn't suggest trying to eat them though considering the potency varies from petal to petal (even on the same plant).

The "trip" is caused because there is a chemical in the flower than blocks a neuro-chemical called atropine. Unfortunately, atropine is the same chemical that allows your body to block the toxins from bee stings and ant bites. Soooo... if you're tripping on this and you get stung or bit - not good.

Ces fleurs suspendues sont splendides et ce dégradé de couleurs et la compostion sont magnifiques.
