Plumeria rubra var. acutifoli (黃花雞蛋花)
The Frangipani is a native of tropical America and is now selected as a popular ornamental with a perfumed, fragrant flower. The flowers are displayed in decorative clusters on the ends of branches. The individual flowers have beautifully positioned petals which are white merging into a golden yellow central zone. The petals overlap to enhance the appeal. Leaves, too, are distinctive with a sharp tip, firm texture and dark green except where conspicuous veins radiated out from a light yellow mid-rib.
Despite their tough texture, Frangipani is deciduous and sheds its leaves for winter. Our variety has stunning white and golden yellows and a sharpened end to its leaf.
