Oleander (Nerium Indicum) is a large, evergreen flowering shrub. Upright in habit, it flowers from early summer through fall with clusters of single or double blooms.
Many colors are available, with pink cultivars being the most common. Oleander grows in full sun, does not require any special soil and is drought-tolerant once established.
The first thing you should know if you want to grow an oleander plant in the garden is that you need to avoid growing oleanders in home landscapes where children and pets play.
All parts of oleander shrubs are poisonous and the smoke from burning oleander debris is toxic. Oleanders bloom from spring until the end of summer, producing large clusters of flowers in shades of yellow, white, pink or red at the tips of the stems.
