Night Blooming Jasmine -Cestrum nocturnum

Cestrum nocturnum also known as Night Blooming Jasmine, is grown as an ornamental plant for its strongly scented flowers. In India it goes under various names such as Raat ki rani, raatrani, Hasnuhana. Placing a plant indoors while in bloom can scent an entire house. The Nizams of Hyderabad favored a sweet smelling perfume (Ittar, or Attar) made by infusing the petals of this intoxicating flower in oils. A fast growing plant will need trimming back and upgrading of pot size regularly. Plants are ~7-10" tall.
