'Queen of the night' - 'Kadapul mala', unfurling around 9pm, spreading a sweet fragrance.
Blooms about twice an year and at night. It pervades the night area with a pleasant scent. The flower withers within 24 hours. Much sought after in the villages of Sri Lanka to do a 'Puja' to the image of Lord Buddha.
