The Climbing Frangipani (Chonemorpha macrophylla) is a vigorous tropical climber with large coarse leaves and masses of perfumed white flowers. This vine is grown for its shiny evergreen foliage and stunning scented flowers which resemble that of a frangipani. It’s suitable for training over pergolas or trees and can be used to achieve an exotic fragrant garden. The Climbing Frangipani needs lots of space and a strong structure to climb on, and will provide plenty of privacy and shade when grown over objects.
