Can anyone identify this flower

Barbados Bb

I was given a plant by an acquaintance. I is unusual and I would like to know its name




Not too sure Serenity but it could be a double flower from a Brugmansia or Datura. A shrub for warmer climates with fabulous trumpet flowers in Summer. Of an evening the scent is very heady and perfumed.

Definitely a Datura Purple Ballerina or Purple Queen. Careful to wash your hands afterwards they are related to deadly nightshade and all parts are poisonous.
