I need your help in deciphering a mystery, when it comes to evening jasmine or Cestrum Nocturnum
I have been told most of my life that, there are two kinds of evening Jasmin or galán de noche
One with a strong fragrance and one with NO fragrance at all, which is called day jasmine or galán de día
I found this cestrum that has smaller trumpets and whiter, I do not know, at this moment what kind of cestrum,is this because I read that there are more than one variety
Thank you !
While doing research on the subject , I found out that there are over 200 species , in colors that blew my mind , from red , yellows to purples and orange
I just wonder if their fragrance is as strong as the evening jasmine
I don't mind having a light fragrance like C.diurnum, is another piece added to my collection, is very sad when people destroy a plant, just because it doesn't smell, as a neighbor told me, after destroying one in his patio, but with your helpful information; I may help him see the light
[quote="Vestia"]We grow many sp. of Cestrum here, but we do not have the amazing Greta. [/quote]
I will be looking for one :-)
You are so lucky , with all those beautiful varieties of cestrum , if you ever decide to sell a cutting , please keep me in mind
