Oleanders

Oleanders are a hardy and popular variety of flowering shrub. They make wonderful hedge or screening plants. Once established, Oleanders are drought tolerant, heat, wind and disease resistant and very durable. The Hardy Red, Pink and Yellow varieties offer up plenty of beautiful flowers that hold their color for an extended time through the summer. Petite is a dwarf version of the Hardy variety of Oleanders. Noted for their durable heat, drought and salt tolerance, these plants are very useful in coastal locations and Xeric plantings. Their flowers bloom from spring through summer. The petite line is offered here at Creekside Nursery in Pink and Salmon.
