Melia azedarach 

Melia azedarach 

An adaptable flowering tree, capable of performing well in a wide range of sites. Long and extensively utilised as a street and amenity tree in many cities and towns throughout Australia. Naturalised seedlings may be problematic in hot and warm temperate areas but are rare in colder areas. Seedling grown, so can be highly variable in habit and flowering characteristics. Its wide usage can be attributed to heat and drought tolerance combined with ornamental features such as fine, pinnate foliage and showy flowers.
