- Jasmine Night Blooming
Jasmine Night Blooming
A woody evergreen shrub related to nightshade. It grows between 4 and 13 feet tall, yielding simple glossy, lance-shaped green leaves and long vine-like 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.
