flower that looked like an angel trumpet called the wedding bell plant

Mom had a flower that looked like an angel trumpet that she called the wedding bell plant. The blooms grew upward instead of downward like all of the angel trumpets in the pictures on this website. I would love to know the proper name of it and where I may buy one. Thanks for your help.

There are 2 plants that have the common name of Angel Trumpet. The flowers are the same shape, but yes, one hangs down and one points up.

The pictures you saw on our site were of brugmansias (flower down), which are tropical. The plant you want is datura (flower up), which grow in most temperate areas.
