Nerium Oleander
Nerium Oleander
Oleander grows into a large bush or tree and in the summer produce masses of these pink, sweet smelling flowers. However, all parts of the plant are poisonous, with one leaf being enough to kill a child. Therefore great care needs to be taken around these plants. The poison remains even after the leaves etc. have been dried.

With the milder weather we are now experiencing in the winter it has been possible to grow these Mediterranean plants in the garden.
