How to care for your Chinese Perfume Tree

Chinese Perfume Tree requires understanding its native tropical environment and emulating those conditions as closely as possible. By providing the right amount of sun, water, and nutrients, you can help your tree to grow healthy and strong, and to produce the maximum number of its enchanting, sweet-smelling flowers.


The Chinese Perfume Tree is a tropical plant that thrives in warm environments. It is suited for USDA hardiness zones 10-11. However, it can also be grown indoors in cooler climates. If planting outdoors, choose a spot that offers full to partial sun exposure. The tree can grow up to 15 feet tall, so ensure ample space for growth.


Like many tropical plants, the Chinese Perfume Tree prefers consistent moisture but does not tolerate waterlogging. Overwatering can lead to root rot. Ensure your tree is in well-draining soil, and water it when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Reduce watering in the winter months when the tree enters a dormant phase.

If your tree is planted indoors, it may suffer from lack of humidity, especially during the winter months when indoor heating can dry out the air. Misting the leaves or placing the plant on a tray of pebbles with water can help increase humidity.


To support its vigorous growth and abundant flowering, the Chinese Perfume Tree benefits from regular feeding. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer applied at the beginning of the growing season and again in mid-summer. Ensure to follow package instructions to avoid over-fertilizing.


Pruning helps to maintain the shape of the tree and promotes branching, resulting in more blooms. The best time to prune is in late winter or early spring before new growth starts. Remove any dead or diseased branches. Make clean cuts at a 45-degree angle to avoid damaging the tree.

Pest and Disease Management

The Chinese Perfume Tree is generally disease-resistant, but it can be prone to pests like scale, mealybugs, and aphids. Regularly inspect your tree for signs of these pests. Neem oil or an insecticidal soap can be effective treatments if pests are found.


Propagation of the Chinese Perfume Tree is commonly done through seeds or cuttings. If using cuttings, take them in early summer and place in a mixture of peat and perlite. Keep the cutting in a humid environment until roots develop.
