We installed a flood light to see the Night-Jasmine tree in our garden at night, since the flowers shed at sunrise….This plant is native to parts of Asia. Every part of the beautiful tree is edible and full of antioxidants and amazing chemicals. The fragrant flowers fall through the day and last only for a day. When we wake up in the morning, the carpet of white flowers with bright orange-red centers greet us. The flowers, bark, seeds, stem and fruit of the tree are said to cure viral, fungal and parasitic diseases, and contains substances which protect the liver and boost immunity. The leaves have been used to cure sciatica and arthritis in traditional medicine.
The tree sheds all its flowers by early morning!! The fragrance remains for a while though….
