Can anyone identify this plant?

United Kingdom Gb

I saw this growing all over Tanzania and the flowers are beautifully scented. It's quite a strong scented plant as you can smell it from several metres away. I really hope someone can help as I loved this plant and want it in my own garden!




It's a brunfelsia - the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow bush - so-called because the flowers change colour from white to mauve to purple on consecutive days after being pollinated. Unfortunately it is not hardy but you could try it in a large conservatory

I saw one of these at an NGS garden in the summer. Amazingly, it seems to be thriving outdoors there! I thought I recognised it - but had a senior moment and forgot its name....

How do I say thanks?
