Plant Care


During summer, Water daily or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. During Winter season water once in 2 days or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.


During summer season keep the plants in shaded area and during winter season plants can withstand direct/indirect light.

Plant Bio

The plant also goes by the synonym “Cascabela Thevetia”, pronounced [kas-kuh-BEL-uh thev-VET-ee-uh]. Either way, most people simply call it yellow oleander plant.

It features thin green stems and leaves along with bright, shining orange or yellow flowers.

While it’s a beautiful plant, the stems and leaves are poisonous, requiring extra precaution when choosing the right spot.

The tall, slim shrub requires a lot of open space to reach its full potential. Besides ensuring that it has room to grow, there are a few other care tips to follow.

Thevetia Peruviana Yellow Oleander Care

Size and Growth

The yellow oleander is a slim plant but can reach 7′ feet tall. Other than the shorter height and thinner leaves, the plant resembles true oleander.

The thin green stems don’t stick out very far, resulting in a slender plant.

The leaves typically reach 4″ – 5″ inches and are no more than a 1/4″ inch wide.

The topsides are leathery and dark green while the undersides are pale green.

Flowering and Fragrance

This is a summer-blooming plant, producing small clusters of flowers at the ends of the thin stems.

The trumpet-shaped flowers reach about 2″ or 3″ inches and are typically a shiny yellow or orange color.

The odor is faint but offers a sweet scent that can carry through the air on warm summer evenings.

Light and Temperature

The plant is winter hardy to USDA zones 8 to 10, and may not survive the winter in cooler regions.

Indoors, it can survive at regular room temperature.

Ensure that the plant gets sunlight throughout the year. Outdoors, give it full sun or partial shade.

Even in cooler regions, the plant can grow outdoors and brought in after the flowers bloom.

When grown indoors, set it near a west-facing or south-facing window for the most exposure to sunlight.

Watering and Feeding

From early spring to early fall, the plant needs thorough and regular watering.

TIP: Don’t let the soil dry out during the flowering season or the flowers will wither early.

Mist the plant weekly to maintain humidity. In dry environments, misting may be needed two or three times per week.

Feed the plant during the active growing season after the buds appear in early spring.

During the fall and winter, fertilizer isn’t needed and it should only be watered infrequently.

Soil and Transplanting

Grow the plant in soil with fast drainage. Combine regular potting soil with peat moss or compost to create better drainage and encourage a healthy root system.

The plant should be repotted every two or three years, using the same soil recommendations.

Always repot in March, just before the start of spring and the active growing season.

When repotting, use a pot slightly larger than the previous one. Use part of the old potting soil combined with fresh soil.

Grooming and Maintenance

To manage the growth of the plant, trim it back in the fall. Non-flowering stems can be removed for cuttings.

CAUTION: When trimming the plant, wear gloves to protect skin from the sap.

The poisonous substance may cause skin irritation or severe rashes.
