Tough and vigorous, Nerium oleander ‘Petite Pink’ (Oleander) is a compact, dwarf evergreen shrub that produces abundant clusters of five-petaled funnel-shaped, soft pink flowers. It will bloom year-round in warm climate areas with a peak in summer. Thriving with little care, this beautiful flowering shrub features a bushy, rounded to vase-shaped habit, and its evergreen foliage of leathery, lance-shaped leaves clad the branches throughout the year. Native to the Mediterranean region, this attractive shrub is heat and drought-tolerant once established and will grow especially well in seaside gardens, tolerating salt spray and wind. ‘Petite Pink’ oleander is however less cold-hardy than most Oleanders and should be used in very sheltered areas near the coast.

  • Grows upright with an open habit to 3-6 ft. high and wide (90-180 cm). Ideal for small gardens.
  • Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Will grow in poor soils and tolerate coastal conditions. While Oleanders are very drought tolerant, their floral show is more impressive if regularly watered.
  • Deer and rabbit resistant
  • Great for flowering hedges, cottage gardens, coastal gardens, Mediterranean gardens, city gardens, or large containers.
  • Virtually disease free, but watch for red spider mites, scale insects, and mealybugs.
  • Prune lightly as needed to shape after flowering
  • Propagate via semi-hardwood /softwood tip cuttings
  • All parts are highly toxic if ingested. Contact with foliage may irritate the skin.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
