These beautiful white flowers along the roadside in my city are oleanders. Their Chinese names are 夹竹桃. I knew of them when I was a child and I think they are the kinds of flowers I learned the most earlier. Back in the old days, my father planted a few oleanders in my front yard and told me they were oleanders, and they are a kind of Chinese medicine. But in my memory, it seemed I had never seen them blossom. But now, as you see, they are blossoming brightly and densely and they are indeed a bright scenery in the city.

They are pretty :) I wonder what kind of illness the medicine treats, and which parts of the plant are used to make it.

These beautiful white flowers along the roadside in my city are called oleanders. Their name in Chinese is 夹竹桃. I learned about them when I was a child and I think they are the kind of flower I learned the most about when I was young. Back in the old days, my father planted a few oleanders in our front yard and told me they were named oleanders, and they are used in Chinese medicine. But when I look back, it seems I have never seen them blossom. But now, as you see, they are blossoming brightly and densely and they add brightness to the city's scenery.
