Fancy Frangipanis has been under development for over 10 years, however the love of frangipanis started when I was a child growing up in Papua New Guinea with the fragrance and colour of the tropics dominated by the beautiful frangipani.
As children we were blessed with large trees which we could climb, collect flowers to make leis and decorate the tables with tropical flowers floating on water filled large bowls.
I commenced collecting frangipanis 10 years ago based on the collection program commenced in Hawaii some 30 years ago. The basis of the Hawaiin collection program was to evaluate established trees many of which were seed grown for developing a genetic base for a longer term breeding and selection program.
To date I have some 500 different flower and plant types in my collection and the first seedlings which now number over 2500 commenced flowering in 2011.
This collection forms the basis for the supply of cuttings and the grow on of potted plants that are described on this site and available for purchase.
