Answer: Wisconsin is quite a distance from California. Glad our plants finally found you in your new residence. Cestrum nocturnum is the night blooming jasmine, but the plant is too tender to grow outdoors all year around in Wisconsin. A much hardier look-alike is Trachelospermum, or star jasmine. It has delightfully fragrant, pinwheel-shaped blooms that mimic those of night blooming jasmine. These flowers open during the day, but the fragrance makes this plant worth growing. It's hardy outdoors and has a vining, climbing habit.
