OLEANDER HAUS is an organization which was founded in June 2012.
The association is based in Rax, Jennersdorf 8380, Austria, Europe
OLEANDER HAUS is local/regional, and is the only institution in Austria which is devoted to the subject of oleanders in every aspect and in its broadest range. Thus, the OLEANDER HAUS is a central contact point for all oleander enthusiasts; a display garden for oleanders is being created; the surrounding village is decorated with oleanders during the summer (which is extraordinary and unique for this latitude and climate); special events and festivals are held, and information about oleanders is made available in many different forms. With its activities, the OLEANDER HAUS is also a new tourist attraction.
The OLEANDER HAUS strives to become a center for oleanders not only in Austria and Central Europe, but internationally.
This means that an oleander collection should be compiled which, insofar as possible, will contain all of the oleander cultivars available or known in Europe and/or the Western World.
Over the long term, an overview is to be created which will cover all aspects of Nerium oleander L. : literature, pictorial material, art, history, and culture. The website and Facebook
pages of the OLEANDER HAUS are constantly being developed and updated, providing information as to the current state of affairs.
In order to implement all of these activities and to achieve the goals which have been set, there currently exists a project with the name OLEANDERDORF RAX (Oleander Village of Rax). This project is being sponsored by the regional government (Burgenländische Landesregierung) and by the European Union.
