Cananga odorata in containers?

jimshyJune 6, 2006

I've been considering ylang-ylang again . . .

Haven't tried one before, because of space limits indoors, and because the dwarf forms of ylang-ylang seem to be much less fragrant.

Anyone growing the true species in a container and getting good flowering? How big a pot? How tall a plant? How crazy am I to try to overwinter it indoors?

(Don't answer the crazy part, I already know the answer ;>)

Thanks for your experience and advice!

I am very sorry that I can't answer your question, but at least I can tell you my experience.

I have regular one and dwarf one. Actually I found the dwarf one is a great bloomer, blooming all the time with great fragrance. The regular one I keep it in a 10 gallon pot, happy like a pie in my hot sunroom. Almost 5 feet tall with 1 inch trunck, great foliage, very compact. But unfortunately no bloom yet. Maybe I ferted with too much ntrogen. I will let you guys know once it's about to flower, going to be a scene in chilly cold Ottawa.
