Frangipanis have a delicious fragrance with overtones of peaches, jasmine, honeysuckle and apricot. If you would like to strike some cuttings to add frangipani to your garden, it is relatively easy to do. Here is how.


  1. Take cuttings in late spring and through summer. The cuttings should be about 30 centimeter (11.8 in) / 12" in length. Always take cuttings from branches that are not flowering.
  2. Place the cuttings out in the sunshine for a week. This will allow the cut end to dry out and form a callous. Make sure that the cuttings stay dry; keep them away from any possibility of rain.
  3. Fill a pot with sandy soil or sand that has been moistened and well-drained. Root the cuttings in the pot of sand.
  4. Fertilise with a high-potassium fertiliser. Keep in a warm place to grow.
  5. Keep well watered and well drained. After a time, you should see some of the cuttings starting to strike.


  • Always use sterilised snips, secateurs or garden knife to ensure that you do not inadvertently transfer disease between plants.
  • A plant as deliciously fragrant as this is always welcome planted near windows or French doors where you spend a lot time; outside a bedroom window is a great choice for the scent as you fall asleep, or near a lounge where you sit for long periods of time.


  • Be careful of the milky sap; it is poisonous and can harm your eyes if it gets into them. Some people are also highly sensitive to the sap on their skin. Wear gloves and do not rub your eyes - wash your hands well after cutting and planting.
