  • Where are you located? Is this your plant? If so what was the colour of the flower? Anything particular about them that stood-out?

  • Thank you for telling me the colour. Can you tell me what part of the world you are located? Is this an indoor or outdoor plant? Knowing your location makes it easier for others to narrow down the possibilities.

    I'm sorry. I feel like i know what it is, but I still can not think of a name. One day it will come to me. By then it will probably have bloomed for you. Then you will know what it is or someone will.

I think it's a Cestrum nocturnum' or night blooming jasmine which has finished flowering. If the flowers are successfully pollinated, then berries will be produced, so it looks like yours weren't pollinated. It's a tropical climber and grows wild outdoors in places like the Caribbean, but can be kept as a houseplant, though it does need repotting periodically to allow it to grow on a bit.

  • I checked images for the night blooming jasmine, and the plant looks different. Are you sure it is NBJ?
