Thought you all might like to see..Here in the Southern hemisphere the season for Oleander blooms is just beginning to take off. The bush these blooms are on is over 60yrs. This is a common but much admired cultivar.

Many of the blooms display this lovely variegation.

The fragrance reminds me of *Cherry Pie* Heliotrope.

The bush has never been watered and has survived extreme heat at times and many droughts.

Gorgeous! You should put your pics in Plant Files--I noticed that there aren't any pics of that one in there.

So, do you trim that a certain way to get so many blooms at so many different levels.

Brical1,
Hi, I know that you start some oleander from seeds. How long does it take them to flower. I wish more people loved the plant. I just love them and they are so hardy! I wish I could get some doubles with great smell here. Many states can't ship oleander to Arizona because of nematodes or some other reason.
I still haven't been able to get a double red that doesn't have a little white stripe in it, I'm still looking.
I hope that you are still on Daves Garden,
Regards,
Mickey (Kyle)
