General Information: These legendary flowers bring a heady, romantic fragrance to the garden, as well as a wide choice of warm, tropical colours. Frangipanis will grow and flower well as far south as Sydney and Perth, particularly in
coastal gardens. In colder or inland areas grow them in pots against a warm masonry wall, in a north facing position and protect them from frost.
Soil: Very well drained fertile soil.
Watering: Water occassionally during the warmer months (leave them to nature in the cooler months). Drought tolerant but will perform best when watered weekly. In pots, allow potting mix to dry out between waterings, and allow plants to dry out whilst dormant.
Fertilising: Fertilise regularly from when new growth appears in warmer months. Prefers a high phosphate fertiliser for strong root growth which will in turn promote the most blooms.
Pruning: Prune to shape if required.
Likes: Warm conditions. Dislikes: Wet feet.
Pests: Relatively pest and disease free, but will defoliate when cold. “Black tip” fungus can occur after frosts and is treated by pruning to below the affected wood. Cleaning up and disposing of leaves after leaf drop will assist preventing the spread of any disease.
Tips: Also perform exceptionally well in a large container. Transplant Frangipani or prune them when dormant in the cooler months.
