Only the roughest and toughest plants around come straight out of Austin, Texas. Austin Pretty Limits® Oleander Nerium doesn’t miss a beat and can take the heat! For subtropical zones from 8 to 11, expect nonstop bright pink star-shaped blooms in all four seasons. This densely rounded flowering hedge has lovely lance-shaped leathery leaves that whorl around erect woody stems reaching 48 to 72 inches in height. Say hello to the new sheriff in town!
Oleander is admired for its beauty and fragrance, but be aware that every part of this plant is highly toxic. Rabbits and deer steer clear. Nerium oleander has few problems with pests and this variety is very disease resistant. Subtropical plants do not tolerate frost and in colder regions (7 and below) oleander is planted as an annual typically used in container plantings. Oleander is sure to make a big impression at any time of year.
Austin Pretty Limits® Oleander Care
If only everything in life could be easy and low maintenance. Ensure this shrub gets full sun, average, well draining soil, and water on a consistent basis. Let the soil dry out between watering. Oleander is a heavy feeder so apply a balanced water-soluble fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks or fertilize roughly 3 times per growing season.
Blooms occur on both new and old wood. It is recommended to take the lazy gardener approach and don’t prune. If you do decide to prune, protect your skin from irritating sap, discard all fallen branches, and prune it in late Winter or early Spring.
Austin Pretty Limits® Oleander Spacing
Space shrubs 4 feet apart when planting in the landscape. When planting in pots, make sure roots have ample room to grow. Pick containers that are 1 to 2 pot sizes larger than the root ball.
