Crape Jasmine
This plant is a cultivar from single-flowered Crape Jasmine (Ervatamin coronaria) endemic to India.  It can grow 2 to 3 m in height.  A white double flower resembling Common Gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides) blooms at the tip of the stem and the axil which releases a pleasant scent from the evening to dawn.
Single-flowered Crape Jasmine contains indole alkaloids, for example ervatamine, which has the same effect as tetrodotoxine; this plant needs careful handling.
