ylang ylang tree

    1 responses

Jo starts with ...
I'm hoping someone may be able to help with some information on the root system of the ylang ylang tree. I have 2 in pots and want to plant them but if the roots are invasive I will have to go a safe distance from the house.
Anyone???
Thanks
Jo

Hi Jo,
In the Philippines, Ylang ylang growns into a tall tree about 15-20 metres high and considered a soft wood with long drooping branches. I suggest to plant them away from the house protected from the strong winds as the branches will easily break. A good spot would be near (not too close) a balcony or window. When the tree is in full bloom you will still smell its fragrance from your window. When the flowers start to fall they make a mess, but you can gather them and dry them in the sun to make potpourri or use the fresh ones to infuse in massage oil.
Cheers,
Mrs Turner
