Another Pretty Killer Found in Okinawa
Research indicates, all parts of this plant are dangerous.
If you decide to burn the stuff, don't even think of inhaling the smoke.
Commonly called Oleander, the scientific name is Nerium oleander.
That dude, Alexander the Great, lost some of his army but, it didn't make the online news.
Someone fed them meat, skewered on the twigs from this plant. Oops. Poison.
Somebody Should Have Warned This Lady
It seems, she ate some of the stuff and, get this:
Stuck some up her exhaust pipe (so to speak) and, she died.
Read about her autopsy here, if you don't believe me.
The flowers I spotted were white, They also come in pink or, red.
They start off as shrubs but, look like trees when they grow up.
They might be pretty. However, who wants a plant that kills kids, dogs and horses ?
