How Togor flowers enhance the beauty of your yard  

The magnificent evergreen flowering shrub known as the togor flower (Tabernaemontana divaricata), often referred to as the Chandni flower plant or the pinwheel flower, is a native of South Asia, Southeast Asia, and China. It also goes by the name crape jasmine in English. Moon beam, Nero’s crown, tagar plant, tagar tree, east Indian rosebay, and carnation of India are some of its other names.

Because of its attractive flowers and leaves, it is grown as a house or greenhouse plant in climates where it is not hardy. The term “milk flower” comes from the milky latex that is released when the stem is injured.

Keep the plant in a location with lots of direct sunshine for better plant growth. Direct sunshine is ideal for togor plant growth.



The soil should be fertile, have a high organic content, and have excellent drainage.

Water the area once the top inch or two of soil feel dry to the touch. In the summer, water your plants freely; in the cold and rainy months, water them sparingly.



Plant components that are harm, ill, or dead should be remove from the planting area. Mist neem, eucalyptus, or citrus oil to ward off insect or pest attacks as a first line of defence.
