Alta Vista turned up trumps (did you try that?). It's Oleander (Nerium 
Oleander). Go to http://www.streetside.com/plants/floridata/ref/n/nerium.htm 
for general botanical details.

It does grow in the British Isles but really only in the south-western parts 
and the Channel Islands. Elsewhere it needs protection from the elements.

Now, about this molecule I found. It's got hydrogen, oxygen and carbon atoms 
in it and in Arabic it's called  . . .
