Botanical Name: Cestrum nocturnum

Night scented jasmine is also known as ‘Lady of the Night’, ‘Queen of the Night’ and ‘Night Jasmine’. It is a widely distributed, evergreen and ornamental garden plant growing from 1 to 4 meters high. The white to cream flowers open at night and are highly decorative. They hang in tubule clusters, from 2-5 cm long, ending in a star shape. The flowers are extremely fragrant during the evening hours, with the scent described as having almond, honey and musk tones. The shiny, dark green ovate leaves are 10-15 cm long and have an unpleasant odour when crushed. The berries are reported as green or white when young, changing to black upon maturity. The branches often hang down gracefully.

The native habitat of night scented jessamine is tropical America, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Cuba and the Caribbean. The plant is naturalised nearly all over the world, including NEQ, Australia and New Zealand.

Cestrum parqui is a similar plant, with a similar fragrance, often referred to a green cestrum.

Growing Conditions

‘Lady of the Night’ prefers to grow in full sun, protected positions with well drained, moist soils. It will tolerate light frosts, but is generally considered frost and drought sensitive.

Night scented jessamine is normally propagated courtesy of seed dispersal by birds, after having consumed the fruit. However, presence of horses and cattle may result in a greater dispersal range than expected. The plant will easily grow from cuttings left in compost heaps or near watercourses where they could wash downstream and take root. Take care to dispose of cuttings if you do not want them to grow elsewhere in the garden. If a new plant appears you can simply pull it out of the ground. Seeds can remain dormant for many years and a new plant may appear years after the original.

Precautionary Notes

Night scented jasmine, especially the fruit, is highly toxic and medical attention must be sought if any part of the plant is ingested, by adults, children or pets. It is known to be toxic to livestock, including horses, cattle and rabbits. It can cause elevated temperatures, rapid pulse, excess salivation, hay fever like symptoms, respiratory irritation, headaches or other symptoms so any reaction should be investigated.
