Perennial herb that reaches a height of 2-3 ft from a tuberous root. It produces beautiful flowers that usually open around 4 o'clock in the afternoon - hence its common name, four o'clocks. It is a popular ornamental plant grown worldwide for the beauty of its flowers (which can be white, red, pink, purple, yellow or multicolored) and their sweet fragrance. It was officially botanically recorded in 1753 although it already had long been distributed as an ornamental plant throughout the tropics of the world. In Brazil the plant is known as clavillia, maravilha, or bonina; in Peru it is known as jalapa or maravilla. The plant is used medicinally as well. Indigenous Peruvian people use a root decoction as a diuretic; the Shipibo-Conibo Indians put the flowers in baths to treat colds and flu. In Brazil, the Kayapo Indians inhale the powdered, dried flowers as a snuff for headaches, and use a root decoction to wash wounds and to treat such skin afflictions as leprosy. The Assuraní Indians in Brazil crush the seeds to use as a peppery condiment on foods, and grate the tuberous root into cold water and drink it for intestinal parasites. The tribal people of Orissa, India grind the roots of the plant into a paste with black pepper and take it orally for conjunctivitis. They also apply the juice of the leaves to fungal infections of the skin. Poisonous parts: Roots and seeds. Propagation by seeds is easy.

Nerium oleander, Oleander

Click to see full-size image Nerium oleander
Family: Apocynaceae
Oleander
Origin: Mediterranean area
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersFragrantIrritatingPoisonous or toxicSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This is a tall, erect shrub with stiff, lance-shaped leaves and frequent clusters of white, pink, purple, or red flowers that may be single or double. It will grow in subtropical conditions and is often seen in gardens of the American South. It is notably resistant to salty sea winds and prolonged drought and it generally prefers dry conditions, which is one reason it is used less often in wet regions like Singapore and Malaysia. Like most members of the Apocynaceae family, all flowers of the plant are poisonous; the smoke from burning clippings will produce a reaction in some people. Oleanders need full sun for good flowering and pruning to prevent them from becoming leggy. In areas of frequent rainfall they must be planted in very well-drained soil. They are propagated by cuttings or by air-layering.
