First Oleander flower (Oleander - Adelphi)

We brought two Oleander cuttings back with us when we came back to the UK, and 3 years on, the first flowers!

Thanks everyone.....yes we are really delighted, they were so easy to grow over there...I made two long hedges of them, which flowered in no time..:o))
I am thrilled Dawn...we both thought they were two white ones as they were the strongest, but this lovely peach was my favourite and the other looks to be rose coloured...:o)))
It has a lovely scent too...like vanilla......

Wonderful Janey. What do you do with them in the Winter.

13 Jul, 2010

 

Yes it is Janette....I've been feeding them with Miraclegrow, and with the hot spell...they've loved it!
They're in tubs Dawn and we kept them in an open fronted BBQ place...I thought the greenhouse would be too damp....I didn.t water them, so cold and dry has suited them well....:o)

That's interesting Janey. You provided the perfect situation then. If it can survive the last Winter it should go on forever :-)

Hope so Dawn....would have liked them in my garden, but daren't risk it...shall re-pot them when the flowers are done......

13 Jul, 2010

 

No, not worth the risk is it Janey.

No, they are such a pretty flower and there are lots of different types, there were two pale pink trees in the village where we lived.....all summer they were alight with blossoms with dusty grey foliage...they were such a picture.........

I was bought an Oleander Bush by my mum-in-law this year and was amazed how well it flowers - they jus seem to keep on coming. That's a pretty colour too.
