    Seems to be a bit of confusion, yes the last picture is an oleandar but redeye is referring to the plant back a page.

    Ok need some help with this one, found in a garden in Mornington, the owner has no idea what it is or where it came from. It looks familiar to me, but I just can't think of where to start with naming it.

    Wild choko I call them here. Mongrel things. Latex sap that stains clothes and don't ever let one burst open which they do by themselves as they age anyway. Thousands of little black seeds with white santa-claus type filaments that drift away on the wind to start a thousand other vines. Mongrel things.
