Nerium oleander (B-1, other)

Botanical Name

Nerium oleander

Tree Donor

The Norinchukin Bank

Date Donated

August 1974

Reason for Donation

To commemorate 50 years of Norinchukin Bank in March 1974, a tree planting fund of three million yen was donated to the City of Hiroshima. In October of the previous year, the Nerium oleander was designated by popular vote as Hiroshima City's official flower. The fund was used to buy Nerium oleander trees, Mediterranean plants not often seen in Japan. According to newspaper reports at the time, almost two thousand trees of 26 varieties were planted along both banks of the Honkawa River to the west of Peace Memorial Park.

Reference

The three varieties of oleander planted in the Peace Memorial Park are:

  • Yae-kyochikuto (Double-flowered oleander): Double-flowered variety with deep crimson flowers. It is the most wide-spread variety in Japan, where this species is generally referred to as Kyochikuto.
  • Seiyo-kyochikuto (Western oleander): Native to coastal regions of the Mediterranean Sea. Unlike the widespread yae-kyochikuto, the seiyo-kyochikuto has no fragrance.
  • Shirobana-kyochikuto (White-flowered oleander): Single-flowered variety with white flowers.
