Jasminum sambac (syn. Nyctanthes sambac) is a species of jasmine native to southern Asia, in India, Thailand, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Common names include Arabian Jasmine, Kampupot, Melati (Malay and Indonesian Language), Sampaguita (Tagalog language), and Mallipu ([Tamil]). It is an evergreen vine or shrub reaching up to 1-3 m tall. The leaves are opposite or in whorls of three, simple (not pinnate, like most other jasmines), ovate, 4-12.5 cm long and 2-7.5 cm broad. The flowers are produced in clusters of 3-12 together, strongly scented, with a white corolla 2-3 cm diameter with 5-9 lobes. The flowers open at night, and close in the morning. The fruit is a purple-black berry 1 cm in diameter.
