Re: [RC] oleander - Barbara McCrary

Here in CA, Cal Trans plants them as highway dividers.  They also plant some kind of bush that has berries on it, birds eat the berries and are sometimes killed, either by collision with cars or from becoming tipsy due to eating fermented berries.  But oleander is a very prominent highway divider.  One doesn't expect horses or cattle to be wandering down a divided highway, but it's scary to think of anyway...dying from eating it, that is.

Boy, I'm glad people don't plant oleanders in Kansas. I don't think I've ever seen one.
