Pagoda tree, West Indian jasmine, Temple flower (Eng.)
Frangipanis are relatively 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 colourations.
