Fabulous Frangipanis..

Their diversity of flower colour, intoxicating scent, ease of growth and propagation have made this delightful shrub to small tree a favourite to many and an obsession to some.

Historically the frangipani’s potency has been recorded in myth and legend by numerous cultures from the Mayans to Polynesians.

The Language of Flowers tells us frangipani means love that will withstand distance, freedom, welcome, immortality, strength and love in general.

Perfect for summer shade, delightful scent and stunning floral display, their deciduous nature allows warming winter sun to sooth. The invitation of Love, intoxicating fragrance, enduring floral beauty and ease of care are serious motivators to include one (or more😉) of these beauties into your garden… or even pots!

With tantalising names like 🌺 Frangipani Rubra, Lulu, Bali Whirl, Blackjack, Darwin Blue, Darwin Blood, Hot Pink 🌺 Little Rainbow 🌺 and Everlasting Love, how can you resist one of these to spice up your garden!

Bring on the Love 🙂
