Cestrum elegans

Red Cestrum

These evergreen shrubs and trees are native to tropical areas in the Americas. They boast very fragrant red, yellow, white or greenish flowers that open at night. Flowers attract hummingbirds. Bloom at various times during the year. Grow in warm areas or under glass. Plants damaged by heavy frosts generally come back quickly. Prune heavily to prevent legginess and increase blooms after flowering.
