Cestrum nocturnum is one of the most fragrant plants we grow. An upright container plant from the West Indies with greenish white flowers that emit a romantic fragrance at night. Blooming all year round.
Seeds or cutting
Just give it a sunny spot and you’ll be amazed. Prune hard after flowering to maintain size.
Full sun, grows to 2-3’ in container, minimum temperature 45ºF, intermittent bloomer.
- Ornemental use
Very nice indoor plant. Can be planted as a single plant or in edge.
The etymology of «Cestrum» is uncertain and «nocturnum», means at night, in relation to flowering.
They also reputedly keep mosquitoes away.
