A related and very similar species, lady-of-the-night (Cestrum nocturnum) is promoted as a garden plant for its strongly perfumed flowers, and the two plants could easily be confused. Lady-of-the-night has larger leaves (10-15cm by 4-7cm wide compared with 2-7cm by1-3cm in C. parqui) and white rather than purple berries. It has not been found to naturalized as readily as C. parqui, but being a bird-spread species should be avoided in the garden (Eurobodalla Shire Council, 2004).
