As the Neem seeds now in July are starting to develop we get our last glimpses at the remaining white lilac like flowers. With all the fuss about Neem leaves & seed oil not much attention is given to the flowers of our pharmaceutucal tree. So little knowledge of the plant parts that folks have a hard time deciphering ir apart from other similar looking plants.
Neem seedlings and their leaves have a slightly different look since they have still to develop full limbs with rows of 'feathered' leaves. There are a couple of species & varieties adapted to different growing environments.
There is the Azadirachta excelsa known also as the 'Super Neem' since it grows larger & its beneficial contents multiplied. Other characteristics are typically the same at the same stages of their life cycles.
