The frangipani is an exotic, sweet-smelling, beautiful little flower. I wore fabric frangipani’s in my hair on my wedding day. My mother had a bouquet of frangipanis on her wedding day. For me there will always be this sweet connotation between the frangipani and the Bride. But.
Frangipanis are deadly. A little child playing with the leaves of the frangipani tree can burn from the secreted milk. An ill-advised young pet licking at it can die. Vrekkepani indeed.
