Tabernaemontana divaricata 'Flore Pleno'


Tabernaemontana divaricata 'Flore Pleno'  (Tabernaemontana divaricata 'Flore Pleno')

This Tabernaemontana has many buds and some flowers. The leaves tend to turn yellow because of our horrible water here in San Diego. Photo taken in Balboa Park on Nov. 8, 2012.

It's sometimes called: Crape Jasmine. It has a wonderfully sweet fragrance at night.

It's not a true jasmine, though. It's in the coffee family (Rubiaceae).

That's funny! Maybe you'll be able to buy it anyway. :>)
