Also known as the Singapore Graveyard Flower (Plumeria obtusa), the Fragipani is no stranger to the local streetscape. The alternate name of the tree is attributed to the fragrant white flowers it produces, of which the scent is often associated with ghosts that are believed to live in the trees. The Frangipani trees are often planted in cemeteries or temple grounds, and are also associated with the afterlife in Malay custom.
