Oleander is a bush to be avoided in any garden where children or small pets play. The leaves contain a potentially fatal poison. A few other plants to avoid include foxgloves, hellebores and azaleas. Before planting any plants in the garden, you may want to check with your local poison control center to see if they are safe.
