Adelfa (Nerium oleander)

La adelfa (Nerium oleander ) es un arbusto ornamental perenne y común. En los Estados Unidos, se utiliza en los separadores de las autopistas en los estados más cálidos, como California. Esta planta es extremadamente tóxica y una sola hoja puede matar a un adulto. Esta fotografía muestra la adelfa todavía sin florecer.
