This is an evergreen tree, around 30 to 45Ft in height, with gracefully drooping branches. It is often grown in the gardens of Southeast Asia because of its yellow-green, highly fragrant, drooping flowers, which appear almost continuously on the leafy twigs. Though not striking from a distance, green when they first appear and becoming yellow with maturity, these are very fragrant and are used as offering or to scent a room. Fragrance embraces the yard for many yards around. The flower itself though not standing out among green leaves from the distance, still looks very stylish and reminds an elegant accessory for a luxurious brand name evening dress in addition to it's wonderful fragrance. No wonder the flowers are used for production of Chanel#5 perfume. There is also a smaller form of this plant - Cananga odorata var. fruticosa that grows into a dense shrub about 9ft in height. Cananga does best in full sun but will grow in light shade. Propagation is by seeds, more difficult by cuttings. Very fast growing.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
