Choosing a variety

The bold hybrids of Plumera x rubra are the most widely admired. Unpruned in warm areas, they reach 9m high with a spread of 5m, but a generally smaller, especially in milder climates.

The fragrant flowers come in hues of white, yellow, pink, orange, purple and red. With an expanding range of color combinations and patterns, plus drafts from 1-2m, it's easy to understand why white frangipani has fallen from grace. The color combinations available these days are really spectacular and range to suit any garden situation.

In summer frangipanis cast dappled shade, they line footpaths to create beautiful avenues and they are ideal for framing distant views.
