Yellow Oleander, scientifically known as Thevetia peruviana, is an attractive but highly toxic evergreen shrub that can thrive in the Arizona landscape, particularly in regions with a hot and arid climate. Known for its bright yellow flowers and glossy green leaves, Yellow Oleander adds a burst of color but must be handled with caution due to its toxic nature.

One of the most distinctive features of Yellow Oleander is its beautiful bright yellow, funnel-shaped flowers. These flowers typically appear in clusters and create a visually captivating and vibrant display of color. However, it's important to note that all parts of the Yellow Oleander plant, including the flowers, leaves, and seeds, contain toxic compounds that can be harmful if ingested or touched, so caution must be exercised when planting and maintaining this shrub.

Yellow Oleander shrubs typically reach heights of 6 to 12 feet, with a similar spread, creating a well-proportioned and upright form. They are well-suited to Arizona's hot and arid climate, thriving in full sun and requiring well-drained soil. While they are drought-tolerant once established, their toxic nature necessitates careful handling and placement, especially in landscapes with children or pets.

Maintenance of Yellow Oleander includes occasional pruning to shape the shrub and remove dead or overgrown branches. It's essential to wear gloves when handling this plant to avoid contact with its toxic sap.

In summary, Yellow Oleander is a colorful but toxic choice for Arizona landscapes, especially in regions with a hot and arid climate. Its bright yellow flowers add visual appeal, but its toxic nature requires careful consideration and handling to ensure the safety of humans and pets in the environment.
