Nerium Oleander @ Neighbour’s House

Nerium Oleander @ neighbour’s house
Nerium Oleander is an evergreen shrub thrives in the house next to ours and it has beautiful flowers in white with pale yellow centre. Native from the Mediterranean area to Southeast Asia, the shrub is one of the most poisonous shrubs known today which has toxic in all its parts. I captured the flowers (in couple of photos below) during the early summer season when the shrub was in its full blossoms.

Native to mild climates, the Nerium Oleander is a basic shrub for desert gardening and in coler climates they make an outstanding container plants. An untrimmed shrub can reach up to 20 feet tall with a spread of 10 feet and leaves grow to 10 inches. The easy to grow and drought resistant shrub, doesn’t have a particular soil conditions.

You are correct, Jeevan.
I think Oleander is toxic to pets too.
But, the flowers are beautiful.
So, worth a 'shot', you know?

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Jeevan,
There is a beauty product called Nerium, which my wife was looking at for some reason. Using what I learned from this post, I immediately told my wife to be careful. She read up on it and it did contain Oleander. She won't be buying that product, thanks to your educational post, my friend.
Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :

I am very surprised that this tree with pretty blooms is very toxic! Oh dear....... I thought it would be sweet smelling like jasmine. Normally fragrant flowers are not toxic and edible too as brewed tea nectars.
