Fragrant champaca trees are members of the magnolia family and trace their origins to the climates of Southeast Asia. The trees make an excellent ornamental addition to any landscape, as they remain relatively compact and produce scores of dazzling, golden blooms that often last for months at a time. These attractive blossoms are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also boast an incredibly appealing fragrance that is used in many expensive perfumes across the globe. These breathtaking trees will only grow in a warm climate. They do not require full, direct sunlight to grow but will thrive if planted in a spot that regularly receives at least a few early morning rays of sunshine. The trees can be grown and propagated from seed and can also be grown as container plants.
- Champaca trees are good for small gardens since they aren’t large trees.
- Champaca trees bloom from summer to early fall with fragrant flowers.
- Growing from seed can be done in potting soil and a humid environment.
“The fragrance from the tree’s blossoms is intense and perfumes your entire garden and backyard.”
