The Q&A Archives: Trying To Find "Night Blooming Jasmine"

Question: Please tell me what this plant is called. It has a small flower that is very fragrant and blooms at night. Do you supply it to your retailers? What would I ask for?

Answer: The Latin name for this tropical plant is Cestrum nocturnum and some people (Monrovia included) call it night blooming jessamine while others call it night blooming jasmine. You might wish to check with the retailers in your area (you can use the zip code search at
to identify them) that carry Monrovia products to see if they will be stocking it. If not, a possible mail order source would be Logee's Greenhouses, or 1-888-330-8038.
