Thevetia peruviana-Yellow Oleander

Native of Peru and Argentina. A large evergreen shrub or small tree with either peach or lemon yellow trumpet shaped flowers all summer. The large fruit is poisonous. It is cold tolerant to 25 degrees. Drought and soil tolerant.  Can make a good evergreen hedge. Dense glossy light green foliage. Lends a tropical effect to a landscape. Probably only limited by its tenderness.
