Night-blooming jasmine (Cestrum nocturnum), also called night-blooming cestrum or night jessamine, is a woody evergreen shrub related to nightshade. It grows between 4 and 13 feet tall, yielding simple glossy, lance-shaped green leaves and long vinelike stems. This plant, which is native to the West Indies and Latin America, is not particularly showy, but growers cultivate it for its fragrance. Night-blooming jasmine blooms when the weather is warm, and its narrow, tubular, greenish-white blossoms only open at night. The flowers produce a strong, sweet fragrance that attracts moths and butterflies. Glossy white berries follow the flowers. It works well as a specimen plant or as a border shrub, or as a fragrant addition to a butterfly garden. Night-blooming jasmine is relatively easy to care for in warm climates, but may need additional care in cold environments.
