Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow Plant, Brunfelsia pauciflora, Solanaceae. Tsarasaotra Park, Antananarivo, Madagascar. Cultivated Shrub. Brunfelsia pauciflora is a species of plant in the family Solanaceae, native to the woodlands of Brazil, cultivated for its flowers. It is most common between central and sub-tropical America, and is also popular in southern Africa, where it is known as the Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow plant. This is because the small, fragrant flowers open a deep mauve, change to lavender and finally fade to white, giving a beautiful display of different colours concurrently.
