ยป Dwarf version of the 'Native frangipani'. A shrub with large, glossy leaves and yellow perfumed flowers. Great feature or pot plant that can be used indoors or outdoors. A humus-rich well drained moist soil will see these plants thrive. Full sun is best especially in cooler climates where they may struggle in shaded areas. Fertilize with a native plant fertilizer in spring and again in early summer. Water well before and after fertilizing. Despite its common name, it is not closely related to the frangipani. The species epithet flavum is Latin for yellow and indicates its flower colour. Supplier: Burnley Horticultural College.
