I had the same thing when I moved into my current property, the neighbours Leylandii hedge had never been cut on my side,it was a good 3' to 4' wide just on my side alone.

The only plants that I have ever heard of being toxic to cats are members of Lilium family.

Even then I believe the only cases of poisoning have been when the cut flowers have been indoors & the cat has brushed against the pollen & then licked it from it's fur.

Datura are actually short lived perennials but are usually considered annuals in the UK.

The trouble is ''angels trumpets'' is also used to describe Datura, a similar plant but not the same as Brugmansia.
