Neem, also known as Nimtree or Indian lilac, is a flowering tree in the mahogany family. Neem is native to Southeast Asia, likely India, where it's flowers, bark, and seeds have been used as food and medicine for centuries.

Neem is a tall, fast-growing evergreen tree with highly attractive broad-leafed branches that make full, dense, beautiful canopies. The Neem tree is a very low maintenance plant, said to grow almost anywhere in the lowland tropics. It thrives in warm conditions, and will need to be protected from the freeze or prolonged cold until well-established. 

In the garden, Neem is used as a natural and highly effective insect repellent, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal.  Neem oil kills insects at all stages of development — adult, larvae and egg.
