Oleander Tree (Standard)
AKA Nerium Oleander
Commonly known as oleander due to its superficial resemblance to the olive or Olea tree, even though they two are unrelated.
LIGHT: Bright indirect light (shade) up to periods of direct sun.
WATER: Water when soil becomes dry to the touch, around once a week. Water more frequently during summer or when experiencing extreme heat.
INDOORS OR OUTDOORS? In cooler zones, this plant is most commonly treated as an outdoor annual, planted in containers or gardens and enjoyed for the season. Can be over-wintered by bringing indoors in a full-sun location, or allowing to go dormant until spring.
HEADS UP! Your plant may or may not be blooming at time of purchase. Plant blooms in cycles, and amount of flowers can fluctuate depending on time of year and amount of light it receives. Flowers commonly appear when plant receives more light in spring/summer.
Nursery pot sizes are “nominal” diameter measurements (measurements are approximate and will vary slightly).
Due to the nature of nature, every plant is unique. The plant pictured is for identification purposes and for reference only.
