Shiuli or Shephali or Night-flowering Jasmine (Parijat, Prajakta, Nyctanthes arbor-tristis) is Official State flower of West Bengal. This flower has great significance in Bengali Culture. First of all it reminds us that Devi Durga is coming and all Bengalese(indian state of West Bengal and Bangladesh) mind and body fills with joy. Then, its very nature - blooms at night and falls from the trees as dew drops in the early dawn and fills the morning air with delicate fragrance – it symbolizes love, sacrifice blah blah! There are those zillions of poetry dedicated or related to this flower.
