Thanks …, for confirming and Nice photos


Thanks … for the id and … and … for the pictures… I was wondering what this was…
Since the other cestrum’s pollen is highly allergenic, I would wonder if this one shares the pathogenic properties? I’ll have to do some extensive searches… if I find anything will write it here
