In Hinduism, Champa is considered to be one of the holiest of trees and is planted near temples. Champa is considered to be auspicious and can be planted outside your home. They are highly fragrant and bloom freely from spring through fall in multiple colors like white, yellow, pink, and red. These flowers stand out nicely amid the large-leaved foliage, which may be evergreen or deciduous, depending on the type. This plant will come in a 1-inch net pot.
