During summer, this beauty sports abundant clusters of large, trumpet shape, bright red flowers at the ends of almost every stem. Its long narrow leaves are a beautiful rich green with a white stripe at the center that runs the length of the leaf. No other Oleander will survive the coldest of winters of USDA Zone 8, however Hardy Red sails right through!  




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, the Hardy Red Oleander is ideal for use as a focal point specimen, in groupings, or as a colorful hedge in sunny landscape borders. A fine addition to tropical gardens, tropical-look gardens, rock gardens, red gardens, and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedges; 12 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Oleander is very easy to grow in most any well-drained moist soil of average fertility and full to mostly sun for best flowering. During the first year it requires a moist soil to become established. After that the plant is exceptionally drought tolerant. It does not require pruning however can be trimmed for shape in late winter, before new leaves flush.
