The Radermachera Kunming is a small tree or shrub native to Thailand that is widely grown in USDA Zone 9-11 regions. It thrives in full sun and semi-shade and requires regular watering and fast draining, nutrient-rich soil. While it has good drought tolerance once established, it tends to drop flowers and leaves in winter, so it is best to water it less frequently during this season. In northern regions, it is best to grow the plant in a pot and bring it indoors when temperatures drop. Pruning should be avoided as it can reduce the number of fragrant flowers on the plant.

Not as well known as Michelia or Cananga , the Radermachera Kunming is a true gem for any collection of fragrant plants. Its flowers, which range in color from creamy-pink to off-white with yellow centers, are extremely fragrant and resemble the scents of roses, juicy fruit, candies, and fine cologne. The leaves are also ornamental, with a fountain-like architecture. Easy to grow in a pot, this tree is known for its simplicity, endurance, advancement, and peacefulness. It is also attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators, making it a good choice for pollinator gardens. In some villages, the extract from these flowers is used in traditional pharmacy as a relaxant and aphrodisiac.
