Tree Hymenosporum flavum Native Frangipani
Description 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 its 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.
Foliage Evergreen
Form Oval
Mature Size 6-8 x 5-6m
Uses A fantastic feature tree for any garden. Can also be used in parks and gardens. Great planted at front entrances for its lovely scent.
Position & Soil Prefers a well-drained and nutritious soil but can tolerate a variety of soil types. Can be grown in a shade position but flowers best in a full sun position. We have found that in southern areas of Australia it performs best planted in the ground rather than in pots.
