The Blue Oleander is a type of flower. They are very beautiful and very soft, as well as poisonous to reptiles (according to a botany book belonging to Fishlegs, Chapter 8). As the name suggests, these flowers are blue in colour and almost resembles a hibiscus. They have a dark blue shade at the edges of their petals, and a lighter shade towards the middle. It is also revealed that Scauldrons love to feed on the Blue Oleander.

Hiccup orders Fishlegs to retrieve the buried botany book from the pit to find an antidote. Later, it is found out that the dragons can be cured by the venom of a Scauldron.
