Description

Hymenosporum flavum, commonly known as the Native Frangipani, is a captivating and aromatic flowering tree native to Australia. Despite its common name, it is not related to the true Frangipani but shares a similarly intoxicating fragrance. Offered in a 35AP (Advanced Pot) size, this tree is an ideal choice for those seeking to add a touch of tropical elegance and sweet aroma to their garden or landscape.

Common Name: Native Frangipani
Mature Height (meters): Typically reaches 6-10 meters
Mature Width (meters): 3-5 meters
Spacing: Plant at least 4-5 meters apart from other trees or structures to allow for adequate growth and spread.
Foliage: The Native Frangipani features glossy, dark green leaves that are elongated and slightly wavy. The foliage adds a lush, tropical feel to the garden throughout the year.
Flowering Period: This tree is renowned for its stunning display of fragrant flowers, which bloom in late spring to early summer. The blossoms are initially cream-colored, turning to a deep yellow as they age, and emit a delightful fragrance reminiscent of the traditional Frangipani.
Form/Habit: Hymenosporum flavum has an upright, columnar to slightly spreading habit. It is relatively fast-growing and can be cultivated as a single-trunked tree or a multi-stemmed shrub, depending on pruning.
Uses: Perfect as a specimen tree in gardens, parks, and along streets. Its fragrant flowers and attractive form make it suitable for sensory gardens and as a feature in tropical or native plantings.
Sun: Thrives in full sun to partial shade.
Maintenance: Low maintenance; requires occasional pruning to shape and maintain its desired form, as well as to remove any dead or damaged wood.
Water Requirement: Moderate; regular watering is beneficial, particularly during dry spells and in the tree's early years.
