Many people in Australia are familiar with frangipanis and have experienced their colourful and scented flowers.
With warm weather and a favourable breeze, the beautiful scent of a frangipani flower is always a pleasant surprise. For this reason, we recommend everyone to consider getting a frangipani, or several, for their own yard.
Frangipani Flower Colours
Some people, more likely those who have grown up in a cold climate, would be surprised to know there are more than one or two frangipani flower colours. Besides the common white (yellow centre) and the common pink (orange centre), there are hundreds and possibly thousand of colour variations. The prettiest and the most unusual have been given names (some registered and some not) and have been enthusiastically propagated and replicated.
Many people would be surprised to hear that there is more than one species of frangipani. In Melbourne, every frangipani is most likely to be a rubra. As you go North and the climate become warmer, the choice to grow other species becomes easier. In Northern Australia, numerous species of frangipani trees can be found.
Many people in Queensland will have heard someone mention “the evergreen frangipani“. In past years, it referred to the Singapore frangipani however in recent years with its increase in popularity, many people call the Frangipani Pudica “the evergreen frangipani”.
Growing Conditions For Frangipanis
Too much or too little water or sun will make a frangipani unhealthy, unattractive and possibly be fatal. It’s important to get the right balance of sun and water for healthy frangipanis.
