Kamini Bush Murraya paniculata white fragrant flowering bush Compare with Orange Plant Blooms

Kamini Bush  , Indian origin, botanical name Murraya  paniculata, a beautiful flowering bush that grows with abandon and gives plenty of blooms. we have two bushes growing one is a bit slow in flwoering and the other grows like wild! also known as Kunti, banmallika, pandhri and many other names.
Our previous kamini bush had not flowered for years and I had begun to doubt its existence, when our parakeet enjoyed the garden plants, nibbled on to the new shoots and this triggered  the flowering spurt and then the kamini bush had given plenty of blooms, trimming had worked for flowering.

 With our mogra plants now getting the growth  spurt the summer heat is welcomed   by the fragrant flowers in our terrace garden. The white fragrant mogra blooms are excellent boost to nervous system and mind to beat the summer cool nights. As the tiny oranges come to life from   white fragrant citrus smelling flowers so also the kamini bush has bloomed well with lots of tiny white fragrant blooms.

 Flowers on the orange plant and kamini bush look almost same except that the kamini bush produces more tubular funnel shaped flowers. The fragrance is almost the same, those who have this kamini bush swear by the fragrance of its blooms, citrus, orangy, tangy, fruity strong fragrance.
The long pointed thin stems must be trimmed giving shape to the kamini bush  to encourage new growth and flowering

The kamini bush does not require much care except for watering and few  feedings for flowering. Trimming always helps to trigger flowering in the   bush and this kamini bush can grow into a big tree if allowed the liberty.
