The Yellow Oleander Tree, scientifically known as Thevetia peruviana, is a highly ornamental evergreen that is native to Mexico and Central America. It is widely cultivated for its glossy, dark green foliage and showy, trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom throughout the year in tropical and subtropical climates. Despite its common name, it is not a true oleander but shares some similar characteristics, including its toxic properties.

Growing to about 10 to 20 feet tall with a spread of 6 to 10 feet, the Yellow Oleander Tree forms a dense, rounded canopy that makes it an excellent choice for a specimen plant, hedge, or screen in the landscape. Its flowers are most commonly bright yellow, but apricot or peach-colored varieties are also available. The flowers are followed by fruit that resembles a large, green drupe, which contains highly toxic seeds.

Adapted to full sun, Yellow Oleander thrives in well-draining soil and is drought-tolerant once established, making it suitable for xeriscaping and low-water-use gardens. It prefers warm climates and is frost-sensitive, often grown as a container plant or seasonal outdoor shrub in cooler regions where it can be moved indoors to protect from cold weather.

In landscaping, Yellow Oleander is valued for its tropical appearance, vibrant flowers, and ability to attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. However, due to its toxic nature, caution should be exercised when planting it in areas accessible to children and pets. Regular pruning can help maintain its shape and promote denser foliage and more prolific flowering.

Overall, the Yellow Oleander Tree is a beautiful, yet potentially dangerous plant that adds a tropical flair to the landscape. Its adaptability to various growing conditions and long blooming season make it a popular choice for gardeners in warmer climates seeking to create visually striking and dynamic garden spaces.
