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.

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.


According to Tibetan beliefs, the Buddha of the next era will find enlightenment under the white flower canopy of the champaca tree.
