This deciduous shrub is displaying attractive flowers in the Glasshouse Bays.
Cestrum parqui, or the willow-leaved jessamine, can grow to form an upright shrub to 2.5m in height in a sheltered position. It has lanceolate leaves, similar to those of weeping willow, and produces terminal and axillary cymes of bright yellow flowers. These are tubular and highly fragrant at night. A member of the potato family, Solanaceae, the genus Cestrum comprises 175 species of evergreen and deciduous shrubs. This species occurs in moist habitats from Bolivia to Brazil, and in southern South America, though it can spread easily and inhabit roadsides and disturbed ground, and is considered an invasive species in some regions.
