Cestrum nocturnum has possibly the strongest scented flowers in the world. Yet the flowers are insignificant during the day when the slender greenish-white tubular bells are closed over.
But on a warm summer evening, their petals open to release the most intoxicating perfume into the night air.
Cestrum nocturnum, perhaps better known as the Night Flowering Jasmine, Night Scented Jasmine, Night Blooming Jasmine, Lady of the Night, Dama de Noche and Galan de Noche is one of the most wonderful plants on the planet, and one no home should be without.
This site is dedicated to this wonderful plant which grows naturally in sub-tropical regions of the world, but may need some help to grow in more temperate climates.
