Plant Description

Thevetia peruviana, commonly known as yellow oleander, is an evergreen shrub or small tree native to Central and South America, particularly Peru. It is appreciated for its attractive appearance, featuring glossy green leaves and striking yellow or occasionally apricot-colored trumpet-shaped flowers. However, it's important to note that all parts of this plant, including the seeds, are highly toxic if ingested, so caution is necessary when cultivating it. Here's a brief description and some cultivation tips for Thevetia peruviana:

Yellow oleander is a compact, bushy plant that typically reaches heights of 6 to 20 feet (2 to 6 meters). Its lance-shaped leaves are dark green and glossy, providing an appealing backdrop for the showy, funnel-shaped flowers. These flowers, which measure about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) in diameter, can range in color from bright yellow to apricot and appear throughout the year in warm climates. Despite its toxicity, yellow oleander is a popular choice in tropical and subtropical gardens for its ornamental value.


  1. Location: Plant yellow oleander in a location with full sun to partial shade. It thrives in warm and sunny conditions but can tolerate some shade.

  2. Soil: Yellow oleander prefers well-draining soil with good organic content. It can adapt to various soil types, including sandy and loamy soils.

  3. Watering: Once established, yellow oleander is drought-tolerant and can withstand dry periods. However, during its initial growth phase and in hot, dry climates, provide regular watering to help it establish a strong root system.

  4. Pruning: Prune the plant as needed to maintain its shape and remove dead or damaged branches. It's best to do this in late winter or early spring before new growth begins.

  5. Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to encourage healthy growth and flowering. Avoid excessive fertilization, which can lead to excessive vegetative growth.

  6. Mulching: Apply mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds. Keep the mulch away from the stem to prevent moisture-related issues.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: Yellow oleander is generally resistant to most pests and diseases. However, monitor the plant for signs of stress or issues and address them promptly.

  8. Propagation: You can propagate Thevetia peruviana from seeds or semi-hardwood cuttings. Seeds should be sown in a well-draining medium, while cuttings can be taken from healthy, young shoots.

  9. Toxicity: Be aware that all parts of the yellow oleander plant are highly toxic if ingested, so exercise caution and keep it away from areas where children and pets play.

Yellow oleander is an attractive and resilient plant that can add a splash of vibrant color to your garden or landscape. However, always be mindful of its toxic nature and take precautions to ensure the safety of those around it.
