Scientific name: genus: plumeria
A frangipani is a tropical deciduous flowering shrub. It is related to the oleander, and both have milky, poisonous sap. Its flowers are usually white with a yellow centre, but some varieties have pink flowers. They are fragrant at night to attract moths. You can grow your own frangipani easily by taking a cutting without leaves in spring, letting it dry out a little and then putting it into some soil.
