utility friendly tree icon OLEANDER
Nerium oleander

General Notes

     Utility friendly tree. Oleander is a commonly grown shrub, also used as either a single or multi-trunk trunk tree standard. Its shiny evergreen foliage and showy flowers in the summer make it quite attractive. It is very durable, and tolerates heat, dryness as well as poor or salty soils. The milky white sap is poisonous, however. It is easily maintained below 25' in height. It is susceptible to oleander knot. Cal-IPC (California Invasive Plant Council) lists this plant, notes it is not known to be invasive and also notes it has reports from riparian areas in the central valley and San Bernardino mountains. Has fragrant flower. Native to Mediterranean.
