This intriguing night-scented jessamine is a hybrid of two species from the West Indies, C. diurnum and C. nocturnum. The small tubular flowers are a glowing mid orange and held in clusters. They are attractive by day and fragrant by night. Popular with butterflies and hummingbirds. In cold winters 'Orange Peel' may die back to the ground but will grow back and reach six feet in a single season. Plant in a warm, sunny location. Deer resistant.
