Fill your Place of Zen with Intoxicating Scents

Discover the enchanting allure of the Ylang-Ylang Tree, scientifically known as Cananga odorata. This tropical evergreen is the original source of the famed ylang-ylang essential oil, treasured for its intoxicating floral scent that calms the senses and elevates the spirit. Native to Southeast Asia, the tree boasts glossy, elongated leaves and produces drooping, yellow-green flowers that transform any garden into a fragrant paradise. The Ylang-Ylang Tree thrives in well-drained soil and is tolerant of both full sun and partial shade. As it matures, this mesmerizing tree can reach heights of up to 40 feet, making it a striking focal point for large outdoor spaces. With its luxurious fragrance and elegant appearance, the Ylang-Ylang Tree offers a sensory feast and adds an exotic touch to your landscape.

Caring for the Ylang Ylang

While native to Southeast Asia, this aromatic tree can flourish in any warm, humid environment if given the proper care. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to cultivate and maintain a thriving Ylang-Ylang Tree.


The Ylang-Ylang Tree thrives best under full sunlight but can tolerate partial shade. However, less light can result in fewer blooms and a less dense canopy, so aim to plant your tree in a location where it will receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight each day.


Ylang-Ylang prefers well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Sandy-loam or loam types are often best, with a slightly acidic to neutral pH range of 6-7. If your soil tends to be clayey or too alkaline, amend it with organic compost or peat moss to improve its structure and pH.


Regular watering is essential, especially for young trees. The soil should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot. Once the tree is established, it becomes relatively drought-resistant, but it will produce more prolific and fragrant blooms when watered regularly.

Humidity is crucial for this tree. While it can adapt to varying humidity levels, a humid environment is preferable for maximizing flower production and maintaining healthy foliage.


For optimal growth, a balanced, slow-release fertilizer with an N-P-K ratio of around 14-14-14 can be applied every 3-4 months. Be cautious not to over-fertilize, as this may lead to nutrient imbalances. Always water thoroughly after fertilizing to help the nutrients seep into the soil.


Pruning should be done to maintain the tree’s shape and to remove dead or diseased branches. Ylang-Ylang trees can grow quite tall, but you can keep them at a manageable height through pruning. Cut back branches and leaves that are shading lower parts of the tree to encourage a more even distribution of blooms.

Pest and Disease Management

Ylang-Ylang Trees are relatively resistant to pests and diseases, although they may occasionally suffer from aphids, scale, or spider mites. Insecticidal soaps or horticultural oils can help control these pests. Fungal infections like root rot can occur in waterlogged conditions, so proper drainage is essential.

Flower Harvesting

If you wish to harvest the flowers for their essential oil, it’s best to do so early in the morning when their aroma is most potent. Use a gentle hand to avoid damaging the delicate petals. The essential oil is typically extracted through steam distillation.
