The frangipani is another trite favourite plant for Sydney-siders. My fixation on them started with visits to my godmother in the southern suburb of Beverly Hills. I didn't know it at the time but in this marginal territory for frangipanis, hers had become a grand specimen in a perfect position nestled up with the reflected heat of a north-facing brick wall. With so many beautiful and fragrant flowers to collect from the ground I was willing to overlook my youthful distaste of their succulent bare branches an aversion I have since outgrown.
