Re: RC: poison plants

Re: Oleander

I remember back in the 60's the people who built the Causeway between Tampa 
and Clearwater (FL) planted LOTS of Oleander along between th eroads edge and 
the waters edge. They also put in Bar-B-Que grills as this was a spot  that 
people liked to picnic, from boat or car.  Needless to say, people started 
getting very, very sick. (Not sure about how many deaths)  So now the 
Oleanders are still along the highway, but there are signs on four sides 
warning not to use them for firewood, hot dog sticks or anything else.  We 
did howevr eradicate a lot of yankees back then. <bg> Truman, were you around
