Answer: Hi there Steven,

Thanks for writing in to us about your gardening problems.

For some reason I haven’t received the image that I think you posted, so this may be a bit hit and miss.

A common problem for Frangipani is “frangipani rust”, and Yates recommends “Yates rose shield insect and disease spray” to alleviate the symptoms. Images can be found in the following link:

You can use this as a foliar spray, making sure that you spray the entire tree until dripping and around the base. Also clean up any leaves on the ground and bin them as they will be a source of re-infection.

Frangipani rust is an ongoing problem that will require repeated treatment, and generally isn’t cured but controlled, as it is a fungi, whose spores move through the air and water.

If this is not what you have please get back to us with a photo and we’ll try again.

Yates Horticulturist.
