This is a gorgeous tropical tree with attractive foliage. The flowers are similar to your “yesterday, today and tomorrow” plant in the sense that you will see three colors on your tree at once; white to dark purple to light purple. This medium size tree blooms on and off through out the year. When in full bloom, you can smell the amazing fragrance from the flowers from a good distance. This tree also forms a nice canopy. It is related to the eggplant and some people confuse small plants with it. This tree produces a fruit, but they are not edible.
