It is a flower called the Queen of the Night.

Cestrum Nocturnum Raat rani , A night-blooming flower with a strong, sweet scent, this wonderful Saturn plant is a member of the Nightshade family (my favorite!), which has close associations with human beings in a large number of cultures across the world. The greenish-white flowers are insignificant in appearance, as we would expect from a Saturn plant, but they are probably the most powerfully scented flowers in the world. On especially warm evenings and on summer full moons (there’s more than a bit of Moon to this plant–consider the name), their sweet, hypnotic scent, designed to attract pollinating moths, can be perceived up to 200 feet away. You can almost feel the scent in the air–it’s very liquid in texture. Some claim that the scent can cause dizziness. Befitting its Saturn nature, this plant was used in funeral rituals in 19th-century Louisiana.

This plant has pretty white creamy flower, leaves are green in color.

Plant is known as night blooming jasmine

flower having good fragrance but most profusely at night.

Flowers almost  all round the year and more profusely in summer and rains.

Regular fertilizers keep plant growth and flowering well.
