Chonemorpha fragrans, Chonemorpha macrophylla
Family: Apocynaceae
Frangipani vine
Origin: India
Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This large-leafed, coarse vine sports large clusters of blooms with a subtle fragrance, best in full sun and acid soil. Large shiny leaves, prominent veins, superb white similar to Frangipani, propellor shaped, delicious rich scent. Flowers are pure white with yellow center. Another variety with creamy flowers - C. penangensis. Use it on larger structures (trellises, columns), or allow it to ramble over tall trees. This is a stunning vine, flowering profusely from May - July; one of the powerful lianas of the Indian and Malayan forests, climbing to the tops of the tallest trees. This plant goes dormant in subtropical climate and usually loses leaves if temperature gets below 60F, but it is somewhat cold tolerant (30-40F) and can survive mild frost for a short period.

I have had this plant growing for 3 years but for some reason it has never flowered. Do you think it is too cold in South Australia. I have a few frangipani trees that flower beautifully but this plant doesn't seem to be happy to flower.
