Frangipanis (also known as Plumerias) are relatively small trees growing only to about 5-6m in height, but what they lack in height they make up in width often becoming as wide as they are tall.
They have a well-behaved root system which makes them great for the home garden and for growing in pots. Frangipanis are also great survivors coping with drought, heat, neglect and insect and pest attack. They are also deciduous allowing maximum winter sun while providing shade in summer.
It is generally thought that frangipanis (plumerias) are native to South & Central America although some reports claim they are native to the Caribbean and were taken to the Americas by Spanish priests.

Vanilla orchids are the only orchids that produce an edible seed. The primary producers of vanilla beans are tropical areas:f Mexico, Madagascar, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea.
Planifolia vs tahitensis vanilla
There are two distinct types of vanilla orchid:
1. Vanilla Planifolia beans have a strong, familiar vanilla flavor, it is often called ‘Madagascar Bourbon’. Planifolia is the same variety grown in Mexico.
2. Vanilla Tahitensis is a weaker vanilla with ‘fruity, floral, and sweet’ flavors created by the compound heliotropin. Tahitensis is a mutated form of a planifolia orchid from Tahiti, though most tahitensis vanilla is now grown in Papa New Guinea. This vanilla is favored by pastry chefs.
