Yellow Frangipani

The petals of the frangipani look velvety soft, but their sap can irritate eyes and skin. As their name suggests, they are fragrant, particularly at night to encourage pollination.

Look, but don’t touch! Yellow frangipani (related to the beautiful but deadly oleander) were captured at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory in Ontario.

  1. I love Frangipani and luckily live in a climate where I can grow them easily. They are flowering now and I often take them in to float in a bowl on the table. I didn’t know however, that they are related to the oleander and are irritants. Thanks for the photo and the info.
