GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Cananga odorata, known as the cananga tree is a tropical tree that is native to India, through parts of Indochina, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia, to Queensland, Australia.
  • It is valued for the perfume extracted from its flowers, called ylang-ylang (a name also sometimes used for the tree itself), which is an essential oil used in aromatherapy.
  • The tree is also called the fragrant cananga, Macassar-oil plant, or perfume tree.
  • Its traditional Polynesian names include Mata‘oi (Cook Islands), Mohokoi (Tonga), Moso‘oi (Samoa), Moto‘oi (Hawaii), and Mokosoi, Mokasoi or Mokohoi (Fiji).
  • The ylang-ylang vine (Artabotrys odoratissimus) and climbing ylang-ylang (Artabotrys hexapetalus) are woody, evergreen climbing plants in the same family.
  • Artabotrys odoratissimus is also a source of perfume.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It prefers a fertile, moist but well-drained soil in a sunny position.
  • It prefers a pH in the range 5 - 6.5, tolerating 4.5 - 8.
  • Trees have escaped from cultivation to become naturalized in some areas.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize the plant with a one-half dose of blooming-grade balanced fertilizer at least once a month during the growth period to encourage blooming.
  • No fertilizing is required from the fall to the early spring.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Bloom best in full sun.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • When watering it, check if the top two-inch layer of soil is dry, if it's moist avoid watering it.
  • The good thing about this plant is that it will tell you when it needs water by wilting.
