Night blooming jasmine, also known as Cestrum nocturnum, is a fragrant flowering plant that is native to tropical regions of the Americas. It is a member of the Solanaceae family, which includes other popular garden plants such as tomatoes, potatoes, and petunias. The plant is a shrub or small tree that can grow up to 10 feet tall in warm climates, but typically stays smaller in cooler regions. It has elongated, dark green leaves and produces small, tubular, white or pale yellow flowers that release a sweet, jasmine-like scent in the evening.
Night blooming jasmine is often grown as an ornamental plant in gardens and as a houseplant. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil that is kept moist but not waterlogged. In colder climates, it can be grown in containers and brought indoors during the winter months. Night blooming jasmine is relatively low maintenance and does not require heavy pruning. However, it may benefit from occasional shaping to maintain a desired size and shape. It can also attract pollinators such as moths and bats, which are important for the ecosystem.

- Pruning: Prune your night blooming jasmine plant in the spring to promote healthy growth and shape the plant. Remove any dead or damaged branches, and cut back any overgrown branches.
