Poison information
All parts of the plant contain strong toxins and will be poisonous if taken in sufficent amounts.
I have quoted the following information regarding its toxicity from Burkes Backyard website (6/3/2011 www.burkesbackyard.com.au/1998/archives/26/ in_the_garden/flowering_plants_and_shrubs/dwarf_oleander)
Is it safe to plant? 
Some people believe oleanders should not be grown in gardens because they are poisonous.

 

Maybe, this is a misinformed belief. 
Whilst oleander (Nerium oleander) is poisonous, it is no more dangerous than many other garden plants.
In general, the stories about poisoning from the plant have been found to be myths. Indeed, records from the Poisons Information Centre suggest that there have been no serious injuries or any deaths attributed to oleander (Nerium oleander) in Australia. Oleander poisoning is caused by glycocytes, which need to be ingested by chewing large quantities of leaves, flowers or fruit. The plant has a bitter taste and large quantities of leaves would need to be ingested to effect poisoning. The bitter taste would also be likely to deter most children before any danger was done. Nevertheless, take care when handling this plant. It is poisonous and shouldn't be under-estimated. Poisons Information For information on oleander poisoning, or for instructions if poisoning is suspected call Poisons Information on 13 1126. This is a national service, which operates from the New Children's Hospital at Westmead, New South Wales. It can be dialled from anywhere in Australia. End Quote
