Thevitia peruviana is also known to be having poisonous kernals that are lethal.
It certainly is an ornamental exotic plant.

 This is Thevetia peruviana, commonly called "Yellow Oleander" in USA. It is not a true oleander (Nerium oleander), but it shares the same toxic properties of that plant. Use with caution around young children; the large woody seeds, while decorative, can be put in the mouths of curious kids, with tragic results.

 Flowers are most commonly yellow here, though apricot-colored form (pictured) and white forms also exist.
