A large shrub with large leaves and very large, funnel-shaped white flowers, it releases its’ perfume at night.

My frustrated search for morning glories (which had been pulled up after our previous visit to make way for a new hotel) led me to this magnificent flower, which looks like a huge morning glory, with its’ head bowed toward the earth.  Releasing its’ perfume at night, it seemed right that this beautiful white flower was the last of the chakra essences.
