Don't mean to hijack Bill's thread. Took these these shots this morning. Found Bill's thread at the top of theTropical Looking Plants section. Figured it to be the appropriate place to post the photos.

When growing up, this flowering vine's common name was Belladonna. I do not know the botanical name. Honestly I am too lazy to search for it. There are so many "in the know" plant freaks on Palm Talk, I figured someone will provide the proper binomial name. This vine was found growing on top of a 7 ft. privacy wall.

:sick: Definitely not an edible flower. Reportedly the flowers contain high levels of strychnine.

Solandra something-or-other. From the nightshade family, which includes lots of poisonous plants, but also tomatoes, potatoes, and other edibles.

Bill's flower photos are so gorgeous!

It's Solandra maxima - Chalice Vine/Flower. Comes from Mexico. I've been after one for a while, but don't really know if they'll grow here. Certainly willing to find out.

Although I agree that all the flower photos look great, have to add that I like the soil as well.
