Here in Asia, particularly the South-East, we usually grow them for their pretty white flowers which are collected in bulk to be made into garlands and flower arrangements. This flower is much loved in Thailand. The flower garlands are used as offerings during prayers or worn in religious ceremonies as well as celebrations. Pretty maidens wear them too, as garlands or hair adornment.
This is my one and only wrightia antidysenterica plant. Very skinny! Therefore, there are not enough flowers to pluck for any celebrations, prayer sessions or beauty routine. I have also previously mistaken it to be Thai Jasmine.
