Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Red Oleander

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Oleander.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Red Oleander gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Red Oleander again after the transplant is complete.

Johnda S on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As long as you are in the growing region(s) for oleander it is evergreen. In spring and all through summer it puts on showstopping amount of long lasting and ever-blooming blossoms. This plant loves full direct sun just keep it watered regularly. I planted mine in a garden bed comprised strictly of Miracle Gro Potting Mix and added in Miracle Gro Perlite. The plant grew like wildfire its first year and the second year is just as showstopping.
