The Interesting Plant at Neighborhood - Nature 122

When we saw first time, we thought the plant is a kind of citrus trees. After looking in details, the plant has no characters of citrus trees.

Citrus trees such as orange, lemon and lime have similar characters or appearances that they have:
- thorns to deter herbivores
- fragrance and beautiful flowers to attract pollinators (bees and butterfly). 

Helping by GoogleID and Gemini (Google AI Chatboot), the plant was identified with common names as:
- day cestrum
- night blooming jasmine.

This plant has a scientific name as Cestrum sp, native to Caribbean and Central America, hence it grows well in warm state like Louisiana.

  3. I thought it was an other yellow plant and than the beautiful yellow button of the Golden button (Cotula coronopifolia) because I have also seen this once long ago when I was on vacation on the island of texel (nl). Then I did not know what I saw and someone who also walked there said this but yes I can also be wrong. Loved what you shared. And I wish you a nice weekend. And this is also for your readers and your family. Greetings, Tine NL( this time from my other website.😉)

  12. What a discovery. It is always fascinating to see what is shown in blog posts around the world. I am thrilled. And of course I wondered whether this citrus-like fruit is edible!
