Answer: Oleander contains numerous toxic compounds, but unless you consume the plant or have extremely sensitive skin, having oleanders in the landscape generally don't pose much of a risk. If you're concerned about having them in your yard, you might want to replace them with one of the following:
Burford holly, Central Texas sage, Chinese horned holly, Eleagnus, Forsythia, photinia, glossy abelia, pittosporum, Indian hawthorne, Italian jasmine, Juniper, nandina, Pomegranate, or winter honeysuckle.
Best wishes with your landscape!
