Many Australians associate frangipani trees with tropical holiday destinations. Frangipanis grow very well in tropical climates, have colourful and beautifully scented flowers and help guests have a relaxing and stress releiving holiday.
While many Australian adults (men?) would not know a frangipani flower from a bromeliad, many Australian adults (women?) remember growing up with frangipani trees in their yards or surrounding neighbourhood. Frangipanis do not always have flowers and we are often too far to notice their scent, but sometimes people are lucky enough to catch their scent and when we do, it can be an unforgettable moment.
“Whenever I smell the scent of a frangipani flower, I’m reminded of the backyard of the house where I grew up. From that memory, I can recall many precious moments with my family, friends and relatives. I want my children to have the same.”A Frangipani Tree Customer
Some people, more likely those who have grown up in a cold climate, would be surprised to know there are more than several frangipani flower colours. Besides the common white (yellow centre) and the common pink (orange centre), frangipani flowers come in 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. See a list of our frangipani varieties.
