“On an island, off the mainland of the state of Texas, is located one of the most delightful cities to be found in America. The city is Galveston, and it contains the most extensive collections of ‘Nerium oleander’ to be found anywhere in the world. Oleanders are planted everywhere – along sidewalks and esplanades, in small gardens and large estates. Truly one would have to visit this city of floral beauty to understand why oleanders and Galveston are synonymous.”

Clarence Pleasants 1966
