Hi thoughts, it's definitely a brugmansia. Hard to tell from the photos but possibly b.candida "old apricot".

I love me brugs.

Yeah nice Brugmansia, I was thinking "old apricot" also ..

If u take a cutting and put it in water or soil and keep it moist it might grow roots, there usually not hard to grow from cuttings :)

Thanks guys I'll try that! I've not had much experience with this plant before and it seems like a lot of research is needed before hand...

I'll root a few cuttings and maybe I can send a few out to other members if anyone is interested :)

I find a good deep sniff with your nose in a flower is enough brug power for me. Careful you don't snort up a bunch of pollen!

It can take many years of simple working, such as with the seeds in the garden to develop a bond with this plant or as it grows. I have not come across the seeds myself, but I have always had this particular plant present in my life and I imagine they (seeds) are not much bigger than a fingernail. This is the approach and patience needed in my opinion otherwise is dangerous.
