One Bengali to Bengali dictionary suggests that the shrub bearing the flower is called \"lady of the night; brunfelsia americana\".....bearing white flowers which are particularly fragrant at night. It also suggests that in Japanese \"Hasnohana\" means the Lotus flower. (This particular reference : \"Byabharik Shabdakosh\"; Kaji Abdul Odud; Presidency Library; Calcutta).
