Hi Ange,

It sounds to me as though you might have some sap sucking insects on your frangipani. It is most likely to be aphids which suck the sap from the leaves, causing them to curl. You can control these pests by spraying with a product called Nature's Way Vegie & Herb Concentrate. Have a look underneath the leaves as well as these creatures are likely to be hiding there. This product will suffocate and kill them on contact. You may have to repeat the application as these pests tend to breed in large numbers and can return to the same location. Good luck.
