Nerium oleander 70-90 CM | Outdoor Plant



Nerium oleander, commonly known as oleander, is a versatile evergreen shrub or small tree known for its attractive, leathery foliage and showy clusters of flowers. It typically grows up to 6-12 feet tall and wide, with narrow, lance-shaped leaves that are dark green and glossy. The flowers are often in shades of pink, red, white, or yellow, and they bloom profusely from late spring through summer. Oleander is drought-tolerant once established and thrives in full sun. However, all parts of the plant are highly toxic if ingested, making it important to handle with care, especially around children and pets.


The oleander is a real sun plant that will blossom all year with enough sun and warmth. The ideal location is on a south or southwest aligned wall, where the plant is also protected against wind and rain. During the colder night hours, the heated wall can provide warmth.

  • Light Requirement: high
  • as warm as possible
  • wind- and rain protected

If you place the plant on the eastern side of your house, the blossoms will develop much slower, northern sides should not be used. Free-standing locations in bright sunlight are possible, but the oleander has to deal with rain or wind, which will really damage kinds with filled blossoms.

Soil Conditions

Oleander comes with high demands regarding the substrate. In the outdoors the plants grow at the courses of rivers, partly on stony and submerged soils. These soils are often chalky and tightly compressed. Normal soil, which usually contains turf, is therefore not suitable for cultivation.

  • nutrient-rich
  • containing clay
  • chalky
  • special pot planting soil for oleander
  • mix of garden soil, compost and clay
  • additionally mix in a bit of garden chalk


Planting Time

If you have a warm climate you can plant oleander in your garden during the spring. Since most plants’ winter hardiness is not enough in our realms, they can only be planted and exist outside in viticultural areas during the colder months. For this purpose you should only choose kinds that are more frost-resistant and have unfilled blossoms.
