MEDICINAL PROPERTIES
Frangipani Vine is a stunning climbing plant, flowering profusely from May - July. The flowers deceptively resemble the Frangipani. It is one of the powerful climbers of the Indian and Malayan forests, climbing to the tops of the tallest trees. Flowers are pure white with a yellow centre, and have a delicious rich fragrance. Even without the flowers, the vine is eye-catching with large shiny leaves with prominent veins. It is found in dense mountain forests, often clinging to trees, in the Himalayas, from Kumaun to NE India, Andaman isles and SE Asia, at altitudes of 400-1800 m. Flowering May-July.
The Roots of Frangipani Vine is used for worms, urinary tract diseases, cardiac debility, jaundice, bronchitis, skin diseases, and fever.
