How to grow and care:

A fast-growing woody plant called Cestrum nocturnum produces night-blooming jasmine. The plant isn't true jasmine, but it is a member of the Solanaceae family, which also includes potatoes and tomatoes and the famous counterpart of the plant, Din ka Raja (King of the Day). Its tubular, greenish-white, or yellow flowers, which release a strong fragrance at night and entice butterflies and other pollinators, are where it gets its name. The shrub blooms continuously throughout the summer and has a long bloom period.
