Oleander is a symbol of caution. Its leaves are very pointed, even slightly sharp to the touch.

It is toxic, especially to children and small animals, and it has been hypothesized that burning oleander leaves were the primary cause of the oracular proclamations at Delphi in ancient Greece, as its smoke has been known to induce symptoms similar to those described by classical authors.
