Description Oleander Photo Gallery
Soil: Sandy soil with good drainage.
Oleander can be counted as a fast growing and hardy plant. Here it is often used as a barrier shrub. I purchased my seven oleanders a few years ago. At the time, they were just a little over a foot tall and had only one or two branches. A few years later, they have already reached the top of my rock wall and they have almost filled up the gap between them. Every spring, they flowered abundantly in red, pink and white. Most of them retaining their green leaves throughout the year. One of them, strangely, dies down each winter, but grows right back in spring.Like orange, oleander does not like to be in wet sagging soil the whole time. Too much water does not help it grown. I used to have them on the drip system, but soon found out they doní»t like to be watered very often, and when watering them, it is better to flood them a bit. Also because they attracts a lot aphis when they are flowering, power spring their leaves and flower buds once a while is the best way to keep these little green creators away, and keep the oleanders look nice and healthy.
