Design Ideas This great white flowering shrub is primarily used as a natural hedge or screen. Large enough to block out views of unsightly adjacent land uses and even cloak unsavory odors with its fragrant flowers. Works well in sideyards to divide multistory homes with foliage.

Companion Plants Group this shrub with big bold tropicals such as Flamenco Flame Double Hibiscus, (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'MonHope'), Strawberry Lemonade Variegated Mandevilla, (Mandevilla sanderi 'MonProud'), Sunny Daze Paraguay Nightshade, (Solanum rantonnetti 'MonRita') and Abyssinian Banana, (Ensete ventricosum).
Care Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
Lore In India the champaca flowers are a valuable crop grown for the perfume industry.
