Fragrant Himalayan Champaca
Pronunciation: my-KEE-lee-a CHAM-pac-a
|Description||An excellent ornamental tree that produces an abundance of extremely fragrant yellow flowers over a long season, from the middle of winter and throughout spring, nestled between handsome, large, lush, glossy, bright green leaves. Matures to a bold, broad, upright form. A handsome specimen for lawn or garden. Evergreen.|

|Blooms||Mid-winter through spring|
|Mature Size||Slow growing; reaches 25 to 30 ft. tall and wide.|
|Flower Attributes||Fragrant, Showy Flowers|
|Design Ideas||Big and evergreen, this is a perfect free-blooming accent tree with a bonus of fragrance. Plant in the front yard or entry court to welcome guests with fragrant shade. Perfect for disguising safety fences surrounding a swimming pool or spa. A reliable semitropical foundation plant for the backyard. Creates an excellent hedge for screening along a fence. Size and density is also good for absorbing adjacent noise from streets or schools.|
|Companion Plants||Lantana (Lantana); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Coneflower (Echinacea); Verbena (Verbena); Salvia (Salvia)|
|Care||Provide deep, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained, loamy soil. Thrives in temperate coastal regions and warm, frost-free regions with regular moisture. Water deeply, regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize regularly during growing season.|
|Lore||According to Tibetan beliefs, the Buddha of the next era will find enlightenment under the white flower canopy of the champaca tree.|
