In short, frangipanis like warm climates. Cold winter mornings and frost can damage and weaken frangipanis which can sometimes be fatal. The best way to find out if a frangipani tree will grow well in your yard or not is to look for frangipanis in your area. If you see a frangipani tree every few houses, you can safely guess one will grow well in your yard. Whether you find dozens or only a few in your suburb, take notice where they are positioned and how healthy they are.
