Fill Your Landscape With Fragrant Blooms

The Ylang Ylang tree is most famous for the incredible fragrance that comes from its blossoms. Its scent has hints of jasmine crossed with a sweet custard apple, and fills the entire landscape.

Many are drawn to Ylang Ylang trees because its oil is used in a variety of different perfumes. A few drops of the oil are perfect for making homemade scents in candles, perfumes and potpourris.

This flowering tree has beautiful blooms that are light green when they first emerge that turn bright yellow as they mature, and best of all, this tree blooms all year. While your neighbor’s trees only bloom for a few weeks, you will have months of continuous flowers. The blossoms pop against the Ylang Ylang’s thick canopy of dark green, lush, tropical leaves.

Ylang Ylang trees are native to tropical areas and are recommended for growing zones 9-11, where they will thrive in the heat and humidity. However, these trees also thrive in containers. If you live farther north than zone 9, place your tree in a container and bring it indoors during the colder months.

Forget the use of chemical sprays and candles to fill a space with a fresh scent. As houseplants Ylang Ylang trees replace old stale air with a rich flowery aroma.

When planted outdoors Ylang Ylang trees take off with a rapid growth rate of 5 or more feet per year. They reach heights of 40 to 60 feet tall to quickly become a large and mature shade tree that’s perfect for hanging out under during hot summer days.

The Ylang Ylang tree is often a popular choice among landscapers because it’s a low maintenance tree that doesn’t require a lot of up keep. By being drought tolerant as well as resistant to pests and diseases, this flowering tree flourishes in a variety of different growing conditions.

Beautiful plant. Always wanted one.

The plant did not survive after several days for new tree in new pot. I have to travel out of town and no one was around to water it. I will reorder a new plant if still available? Thanks, Tran Nguyen

Ylang-ylang Tree 4-5 ft—Well packaged and arrived only 4 days after

I’m glad the issue was rectified and replacement that arrived on time and no plant damage during the few days travel. Thanks to excellent customer service when I initially called regarding plant damage. No wonder, Fast Growing Trees has generally excellent reviews and has earned a high company reputation compared to other nurseries on line. Great job, WAY to GO!!!
