Hymenosporum flavum – Native Frangipani

 

The Native Frangipani is one of the most useful Australian rainforest trees for gardens with its fragrant frangipani-like flowers, glossy green leaves and disitinctive upright pyramidal shape. It grows well over a wide range of soils and climatic conditions and does surprisingly well in inland and southern areas but it is important to protect seedlings from frost until they are a couple of metres tall. Generally, the Native Frangipani does not need pruning, which can damage its symmetrical shape, but it can be pruned to a desired size and shape if required. The delightful fragrance of the flowers is sweetly tropical.
