Hymenosporum flavum

Native Frangipani

Commonly known as the native Frangipani, although not related to the exotic form, this tree bears highly fragrant flower clusters that start out cream and turn to yellow. It is a rainforest tree native to Queensland and New South Wales and it's large, glossy leaves give it a tropical look. Growing to 8 metres in ideal conditions, it is capable of providing a nice canopy and the flowers are great for attracting birds and native bees. We have found that in southern areas of Australia it performs best planted in the ground rather than in pots.
