Oleanders from Morocco
Wild oleanders from the river bed of the Todra River in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Collected at the beginning of March 2014 in the Todra Canyon, ca. 1500 meters (almost 4,900 feet) above sea level. Unfortunately, they haven’t bloomed yet, but presumably the blossoms are single pink.
14 days earlier, still in February, the road was closed because of the snow.
The Moroccan landscape
Morocco is a native habitat for the oleander, that is, one of the regions where it occurs in the wild: in alpine river valleys – here, in the High Atlas Mountains.
