Lucky Seed (Cascabela thevetia)

So I decided to plant a lucky seed tree as well.

Yellow oleander (Cascabela thevetia) is also known as lucky seed or lucky nut because the shape resembles a fortune cookie. It is also known as “be still plant” as all parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested.

It comes in two varieties, yellow and pale orange and is used as an ornamental plant in many countries.

Here are some photos of how it’s growing so far.

I didn’t realize that the fruit contained two seeds so I ended up with two plants growing side by side.
