Brunfelsia

Flower
Family Solanaceae
Name Brunfelsia latifolia
Common Name Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
Etymology

Brunfelsia latifolia, or "Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow" is so named because its flowers open purplish blue and fades to white before dropping off. It is commonly mis-spelt as Brunsfelsia.

Warning: Like most members of the Solanaceae family, this plant is poisonous, in particular, the seeds.
