Cascabela thevetia
Cascabela thevetia (Yellow Oleander)

An evergreen small tree native to Central and South America widely cultivated for ornamental purposes. Has funnel-shaped flowers, primarily yellow or apricot in hue. Following the bloom, the flowers give way to black seed pods harboring 1-2 nut-like seeds. All parts, when ingested, are perilously poisonous, with the sap causing allergic skin reactions in some individuals, and the smoke from burning plant material deemed toxic. Photograph in Barranquilla, Colombia.
