Sweetshade Tree

Hymenosporum flavum

When in bloom, this narrow, upright tree's fragrance will remind you of the sweet scent of plumeria. Sweetshade's yellow flowers debut in early summer, perfuming the entire landscape. The flowers are a creamy color when they open and darken to deep yellow with age. A good choice for small lots or streetside planting areas, sweetshade has a pleasing narrow habit. In time it will grow 40 feet tall and 20 feet wide.

Plant sweetshade in full sun or part shade and well-drained soil. It grows best with deep, infrequent watering. Prevent wayward growth and clusters of leaves at the branch tips by shortening branches by several inches to as much as a couple of feet after it blooms.
