Can you post a photo of it?

RE: Unknown plant

"Dwella" is not a Spanish word. Could you confirm the spelling?


RE: Unknown plant

I started playing with it phonetically since it was probably the poster spelling something she is hearing, then I googled and google came up with Huele de Noche or Cestrum Nocturnum AKA commonly in English as night blooming jessamine.

Here is a link that might be useful: Night Blooming Jessamine
