Tough as nails and pretty too!
How tough is tough? We can tell you that a plant is “as tough as nails”, but what does that really mean?
Well, how about this – in Dallas and Los Angeles Oleanders are used as the shrubs in their freeway plantings since they are able to handle those impossible conditions so easily.
Have you ever ridden on a freeway in Dallas or Los Angeles? If so then you know exactly how harsh a growing environment that is. Now compare that to your garden. If Oleanders don’t just grow, but thrive and profusely flower in the median of the busiest freeways in the world, then you know that they will grow in your yard with no problem!
These tough shrubs are drought, heat and salt resistant. These are perfect accent plants in even the most aggressively warm climates. They are quick growers to their full height of 6 to 8 feet, and are perfect for fences, borders and property edges. In warm zones Oleanders are evergreen shrubs that don’t need to be pruned or fussed over. You can truly plant and forget them, once they are established.
They are evergreens, so the deep green leaf color is on the plant year-round. They put on a flower show all summer long with gorgeous trumpet-shaped blooms. They are big enough to provide a sparkling background for other flowering shrubs in the border, too.
