Not everybody can grow Cananga odorata, Ylang-Ylang Tree. It is fast growing and can get pretty big. You need to have room to grow it. With the Desmo, a small relative you get that intense fragrance but in a plant that can be kept around 3 to 4ft. It is a better choice for those with limited space. And for those in cold areas that will need to protect tropical plants in the winter and otherwise would have a hard time growing the full size Ylang-Ylang. Flowering - warmer months of the year. Growth: moderate; light: filtered light; watering: average; min.temp.: low 30C
