Nyctanthes arbor-tristis-Night flowering Jasmine, harsingar

Our Harsingar/ parijat/ night flowering jasmine tree is called the tree of sorrow as it loses its flowers at dawn, which open only at dusk. It provides us immense joy and makes our mornings heavenly as the exotic flagrance from the fallen flowers spreads far and wide. Some people use the leaves to cure arthritis, the flowers are used to exact perfumes and oil…..each part of the tree apparently has some medicinal or culinary value…we enjoy the sight and fragrance of it every morning…….
