2 Nicely-Sized 4 inch Pots of Fragrant Night Blooming Jasmine


Night Blooming Jasmine, scientifically known as Cestrum nocturnum, is a fragrant and enchanting flowering plant that captivates with its aromatic blossoms. Despite its name, Night Blooming Jasmine is not a true jasmine but belongs to the Solanaceae family. Native to the West Indies and other tropical regions, this shrub is prized for its delightful scent and its ability to bloom at night, releasing its intoxicating fragrance into the evening air.

The Night Blooming Jasmine plant features slender, elongated green leaves that provide an attractive backdrop for its clusters of tubular, creamy-white flowers. The flowers typically emerge in the late afternoon and open fully in the evening, emitting a sweet, rich scent that lingers until the morning hours. The fragrance is especially potent during warm summer nights, adding a touch of magic and romance to the garden or outdoor space.

Planting Zone Information: Night Blooming Jasmine thrives in tropical and subtropical climates. It is generally suited for USDA hardiness zones 9 to 11. It requires warm temperatures and cannot tolerate freezing conditions. In colder regions, it can be grown as a potted plant indoors or in a greenhouse to enjoy its captivating blooms and fragrance.

Growing Guide Instructions for a Night Blooming Jasmine from a 4″ Pot:

  1. Select the right location: Choose a spot in your garden or patio that receives full sun to partial shade. Night Blooming Jasmine prefers bright light but can tolerate some shade.
  2. Soil preparation: Prepare well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility and drainage.
  3. Planting: Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of the Night Blooming Jasmine plant. Gently remove the plant from its 4″ pot and place it in the hole. Ensure the top of the root ball is level with or slightly above the soil surface. Backfill the hole and gently firm the soil around the plant.
  4. Watering: Water the newly planted Night Blooming Jasmine thoroughly to settle the soil. Afterward, water the plant regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. During hot and dry periods, increase the frequency of watering.
  5. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer specifically formulated for flowering plants in the spring, following the package instructions. Repeat the application every few months during the growing season to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.
  6. Pruning: Prune the Night Blooming Jasmine plant in late winter or early spring to maintain its shape and size. Remove any dead or damaged branches and trim back any excessive growth to encourage bushier growth and more blooms.
  7. Pests and diseases: Night Blooming Jasmine is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, occasional issues with aphids, mealybugs, or spider mites may arise. Monitor the plant regularly and take appropriate measures, such as using insecticidal soap or neem oil, to control infestations if necessary.
  8. Winter care (for colder regions): If you live in a region with cold winters, bring your potted Night Blooming Jasmine indoors before the first frost. Place it in a bright location, such as a sunny window, and continue to water and care for it as usual.

By following these guidelines, you can cultivate a thriving Night Blooming Jasmine plant that graces your garden with its exquisite fragrance and delicate blooms, creating an enchanting atmosphere during the warm summer nights

This sprawling shrub has glossy, smooth, simple leaves 4″-8″ long. Vine-like stems reach up to 12′ in its native habitat, but it seldom reaches more than a 4′ mound in a single season. It blooms in cycles throughout warm weather. Greenish-creamy white tubular flowers rise from above leaves along the stem, followed by shiny white, fleshy berries. Although the flowers are not showy to the eye, their sweet scent can overpower. Location: Tropical America. Grows in light, sandy soil; not salt tolerant. Adaptable to a variety of conditions and usually requires little care except for frost protection. Light: Full to filtered sun. Tolerates light shade, but blooms best in good sun. Moisture: Average to moist. Hardiness: USDA Zone 9 and frost-free areas. Day-blooming varieties are slightly hardier. Propagation: Cuttings, seed. Roots easily.

Proud Products Guarantee!!

Plants from Daylily Nursery are guaranteed to arrive healthy and green. If you have any concerns or are dissatisfied within the first five days of receiving your plants, please email or call our office so that we can help make it right! Plants require proper care and nourishment to adapt to their new surroundings. Unfortunately, if your plants have received less-than-ideal care or were purchased for planting outside of your recommended growing zone, your purchase isn’t covered by our guarantee. Zone recommendations are provided in our listings. 

Plants are delicate, living things and we take pride in shipping them thoughtfully, securely and with great care. However, once they leave our facility they may encounter issues in transit that we have no control or influence over. Please note that much of our plant material, while hardy, may arrive damaged or no longer viable if shipped in severe weather conditions. Exercise caution and use your best judgment before ordering during unusually hot or cold weather (below 32 degrees F, or in excess of 95F for shipping purposes), as these extremes may leave your plant vulnerable to damage. We are proud of our products and our reputation for providing excellent plant material. We strive to keep our prices fair and reasonable and to deliver to you the best product on the market, and for that product to arrive at our customers’ doors as pristine as the day it was packed. Please help us to ensure that you receive your plant material in peak condition and ready to plant.

Successful gardening requires careful planning, often full seasons in advance. Do your research and plan ahead for the best planting time in your area. Plants with delicate new roots need the best possible head start in getting established before winter, even hardy evergreen varieties. The optimal time for planting for most of our material is in mid to late spring, past the danger of hard frost. This allows your plants the longest possible growing season. Summer and very early fall are also suitable, as long as your plant is placed in optimal conditions and receives adequate water during the hotter, dryer periods of the summer. Late fall and winter are very risky in most areas, as our plant material ships from cozy greenhouses and will struggle adapting to very cold or frozen soil, or abrupt changes in temperature. This can easily cause damage, stunting, or failure to thrive. When in doubt about suitable planting times or zone compatible plants for your area, reach out to your local Agricultural Extension Office. 

If issues with your plants arise within the first 30 days of receipt, please email or call our office. Our knowledgeable staff will review your concerns and provide guidance and troubleshooting, or a one-time replacement if necessary. The customer assumes responsibility for the cost of shipping the replacement.

Regarding orders placed for deciduous trees during their dormant period (winter or early spring) that fail to break dormancy by May 30th, we extend our guarantee beyond the five-day notification period. Please email or call us by May 30th so we can review your order and provide the necessary assistance. Please bear in mind that we may ask for photos- this aids us in assisting you with your plant. Often stress from shipping can be the cause of delayed development, which may be overcome with informed troubleshooting. 

Plants are our passion and our business, and we take pride in building lasting relationships with our customers, based on reliably good service and trust in our product. However, plants are living things, vulnerable to unpredictable conditions and circumstances every day, just like people. We do our very best to provide top quality plant material, and with your help, we know that we can! Happy Planting!
