FYI, if you type in 'Frangipani' into the search bar (magnifying glass icon) on the left of the website page, it will take you to the Frangipani listings: both seeds and plants.
Should cost circa 35 Euros for a decent size starter plant, plus shipping.
Maybe this link will work to the Frangipani listings:

Oh, and forgot to mention, yes, they live quite happily in a large pot on the terrace!

Hi,
I've got 2 Frangipani's that I bought from this fellow in Germany:http://www.tropenvielfalt.de/
His site is in German, but his english is quite good if you call or email! (His name is Hans)
FYI, I first bought one 2 summers ago, and left it on the terrace for the winter, and yes, it died.
last summer I bought 2 new ones, and brought them in to be dormant for the winter, and they are now back out on the terrace enjoying this weather. One is full of leaves already, but both are healthy!
If you order one soon, it should flower by the end of summer. Buy it too late in the spring and you may not get flowers until the following year!! I bought mine in April last year, and by August the larger one was steadily flowering!
Cheers!

I have bought several trees and shrubs on-line. Checking the catalogue I see that they sell Frangipani trees (white or rose)

We've had 2 but they died in winter unfortunately. You need to cover them in fleece certainly. We live in Theoule so we hardly ever have a frost. Don't know where to buy though. Please let us know if you find a place.
