I love the gardens at Lakeside (we have 4.5 acres of landscaped gardens and 3 acres left wild for the local fauna). One of my favourite plants in the gardens is the frangipani tree.
Although a native species of the Americas tha frangipani has been transported all aorund the world and now grows in most tropical countries, including India. It has a wonderful scent which is strongest at night to attract moths – but as they have no nectar the poor moths just flit from flower to flower, pollinating the frangipani but getting nothing in return!
Indian incense with frangipani scent in it has ‘champa’ as part of its name ( for example Nag Champa). There is a story in Hindu mythology which says that the frangipani is as beautiful as Radhika who is the wife of Lord Krishna; honey-bees are the servants of Lord Krishna and so they don’t sit on the frangipani out of respect for her. I don’t know if this is true, but I’ve never seen a honey-bee on a frangipani!
