NIGHT-FLOWERING JASMINE Nyctanthes arbor tristis
A shrub or small tree to 10 m tall, native to tropical Asia with clusters of simple, white flowers with an orange-red throat. They open at night an produce a sweet, lingering scent. The plants can easily be pruned to be kept smaller.
Hardiness zones: 10-12
Germination: Obtain a pot with holes in the bottom, and a sterile seed-start mix. Add 50% coarse sand to the mix. Wet the medium. Sprinkle the seeds on the surface of the soil. With a spray bottle, mist the seeds so that they settle in. Mist them daily. Occasionally add water from a bottom tray so that the water can wick upwards and not disturb the seeds. Keep at room temperature.
