The botanical name for the plant in question is Brunfelsia floribunda. The common name 'Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' comes from the quick color change of the blossoms from purple (yesterday), to lavender (today), and white (tomorrow). Grown in partial shade and it can reach 10' tall, with several stems growing from the base of the plant.
