- Flowers/Fruits are seasonal and plants may not be with flowers/fruits at the time of order/delivery.
- Oleander plants (Nerium oleander) are among the most versatile of shrubs, with dozens of uses in southern and coastal landscapes.
- They tolerate a wide range of conditions, including difficult soil, salt spray, high pH, severe pruning, reflected heat from pavements and walls, and drought.
- But the one thing they can’t withstand is winter temperatures below 20 degrees Fahrenheit (6.66 C.).
- However, in cooler climates, you can grow an oleander plant in a container and bring it indoors when temperatures drop.
- Almost any soil type will do, including heavy clay, well-drained sand, marshy plots, and areas with high levels of sodium, chloride, and similar salts.
- For best results, plant in soil with a neutral pH between 6.5 to 7.5.
- Use a nitrogen-based fertilizer that is low in phosphorus, no more than 1 pound per 1,000 square feet.
- Adding one-third organic material, such as peat moss, particularly in sandy soils, can promote water absorption.
- Oleanders are quite adaptable but prefer a location that receives full sun.
- In areas with partial shade, oleanders may still produce flowers, just not as many.
- Water plant roots thoroughly right after planting, and always avoid watering foliage to prevent leaf-scorch damage.
- Normal rainfall should be enough to water the plants thereafter unless the rate is less than 1 inch a week during summer.
