ORIGINATES FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN
This evergreen garden shrub can have pink or white fragrant flowers. It is well planted in gardens prone to the ravages of goats, as the leaves are very poisonous. It is said that a single leaf ingested by a person can cause death and even marsh mallows or meat cooked before a fire on the end of an oleander twig can cause serious illness. The plant originates from the Mediterranean.
