Thevetia (Thevetia peruviana)
Thevetia Trees are commonly used in Western landscapes, especially in commercial areas, as a small to medium sized tree capable of filling the role of a full-sized tree in much less space. Thevetia Trees grow quickly and establish a large umbrella-shaped canopy that can provide shade in corners or walkways while contrasting well against walls, brick, or other standard building features.
Aside from their more practical applications, Thevetia produces a healthy amount of coral-shaped yellow or orange flowers that can add good color to your landscape. While it does produce flowers, Thevetia holds their blooms for extended periods of time, resulting in longer lasting color with minimal maintenance. Thevetia Trees provide very important benefits to many areas where other trees won't fit and ask for very little water and clean-up in return.
