Garden Affair : Coral Jasmine

 This month in our region starts with  official beginning for the upcoming festivals for one month starting from the Navratra festival which is ode to the Goddess Durga that is celebrated for nine days.It is interesting to note this month also sees the blooms of Coral jasmine which is a night blooming Jasmine .


Coral jasmine is a beautiful shrub that adores flowers only at the night time for a short period of year.                                                                                                                                                                   
It is a unique jasmine plant variety where petals of pure white color adores a  flower stalk which is beautiful orange in color.                                                                                                                      

It is interesting to note that flowers which blooms at night time does not wither in the morning instead fall from the plant as soon as first  sunrays touches the plant in the morning.
