Sampaguita(philippines national flower)

Sampaguita is a white flower with a single or double layers of fragrant petals. According to folklore, its name was derived from a lover's promise to his lady fair: "Sumpa kita" translated as: "I promise you."  It opens at night and droops in less than a day. The white flowers are often made into wreath and its extract made into perfumes. Sampaguita is not a tree but a woody vine.

The flower called Sampaguita (Jasmine variety) by the filipinos was adopted as the National Flower of Philippines in 1934. It also happens to be the National Flower of Indonesia.
