Outside it would not last the first frost, I have them growing in Melbourne on my front porch and they do well there, would never consider planting one into the garden though, hope this helps (Y)

Not sure there, but being a tropical plant I would not take the risk and the soil also gets very cold, maybe someone further Nth maybe able to help you (Y)

I have two on my covered porch which are doing very well, Ab sent me down a cutting which is with the other two and it is starting to shoot again, it didn't like our 40 degree plus days.

A friend had one growing in central NSW, where Winter temps frequently got down to minus 6. It was planted under the eaves, adjacent to a brick wall, so the wall may well have acted as a heat bank.

Hi,

I grow a frangipani indoors in Mount Gambier, SA and we get some bad frosts. On warmer days I pop it out in the sun, but normally it sits under a window where it still gets some sunlight. It is in a 400mm pot and I have had it for just over 2 years.

Hope this information is of assistance.
Kind regards,
Stacey
