Tough and vigorous, Nerium oleander 'Petite Salmon' (Oleander) is a compact, dwarf evergreen shrub which produces abundant clusters of five-petaled funnel-shaped, salmon pink flowers. It will bloom year round in warm climate areas with a peak in summer. Thriving with little care, this beautiful flowering shrub enjoys 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 Salmon' 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 mite, 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 skin
