Casting tropical spells over all types of gardens the frangipani is a beautiful flowering tree that thrives on little maintenance. A reliable summer flowerer, the frangipani blooms in over 300 colours and petal variations in Australia alone. From pretty pink and butter yellow through to deep blood red and even blue! Popular for their stunningly frangrant and hardy flowers the tree itself can grow over 6m high and 5m wide making it great for shade in summer.
PRO-TIP: Frangipanis are nearly all deciduous. Plant them on the western side of your house to block the hot afternoon sun in the summer will then allow the sunlight to shine through onto your home in the winter months.
Caring for your Frangipani
With a shallow root ball they are perfect to plant near pools and houses without the roots causing structural damage and they also work well in wide pots. Great for beach houses too as they are tolerable of sandy soils and salty air ie. great for waterfront Whitsunday properties!
Do not overwater your Frangipani, make sure they have lots of sun and keep them out of the wind as best as possible.
