Azadirachta indica, commonly known as Neem, Nimtree or Indian lilac, is a tree in the mahogany family.  Neem is a tall, fast-growing evergreen tree with highly attractive broad-leafed branches that make full, dense, beautiful canopies.

Neem grows in tropical to semi-tropical regions and is native to the Indian subcontinent (i.e. India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Maldives).  It's olive-shaped fruit and seeds are the source of Neem oil which is cultivated for antioxidant, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.

The Neem tree is a very low maintenance plant, said to grow almost anywhere in the lowland tropics, thrives in hot conditions, and will need to be protected from the freeze or prolonged cold.  Flowers are self-fertile.

Natural Insect Repellent!
The Neem Tree has been cultivated for centuries for its many medicinal and useful benefits, including using the leaves to naturally repel pests around the home and garden.
