It is very poisonous

When we moved into this home, we also adopted two large showy shrubs in the backyard. They are pink oleander which is a very, very poisonous plant. They also have nuisance bugs which are almost impossible to kill because even the birds know the plants are poisonous. Constant daily spraying seems to be the only way to stay on top of them. Our neighbors who have had, operative word here is HAD, these shrubs have pulled them out. Possibly that will be on the list for future outside work. Now to figure out what to replace them with.

It has been interesting learning the new plants in this tropical climate. The greatest part of living here is that we have blooms all year round and I truly enjoy.

  2. I've always enjoyed oleanders because they are so hardy and easy to grow. I don't remember bug problems. I think their flowers are beautiful too.
