This tropical tree, native to SE Asia is very popular for its extremely fragrant flowers and weeping branches. The green yellow flowers first appear in early autumn, gradually changing to orange over their long flowering season.The essential oil is distilled from the attractive flowers. Its qualities are as antiseptic, aphrodisiac and a tonic to the nervous system. The tree prefers a well drained soil in a sunny protected position with a minimum of 15 degrees

Wonderful tree. Plant it DOWNWIND of the house or some distance away as the perfume is nice but overpowering. | Peter Sutherland - Logan, QLD 10-Mar-2014

This tree is a very good one, but likes plenty of water in hot weather. Does well next to a dam, in a frost-free zone. Looks manky halfway up a north-facing slope. Will flower after three years if happy, by which stage it should be about 4 metres tall. | Peter Sharpe - Mooball, NSW 16-Feb-2018
