Frangipanis are shrubs and small trees, often becoming as wide as they are tall. They have a well-behaved root system which makes them great for the home garden and for growing in pots. Frangipanis are also great survivors - coping with drought, heat, neglect and insect and pest attack. They are also deciduous - allowing maximum winter sun - while providing shade in summer. This genus produces beautiful blooms with overlapping petals in a wide range of bicoloured combinations. White-pink, white-yellow and white with a yellow throat are some common corporations. All parts of the plant, including the latex sap, are toxic.
