In Europe, some white Oleanders look like palm trees, and are believed to be hundreds of years old. The huge contrast between the White Oleander's bright blooms and dark leaves draws attention to the shrub and makes it impossible to miss. White Oleander is native to European countries and old specimens are found flourishing near ancient ruins. The White Flowering Oleander produces flowers that are pure white and make a beautiful addition to your landscape.
• The ideal season for pruning an Oleander is September or early October. Cut the tree just above its leaf nodes, this is the section where new tree leaves sprout from the branches. Three new branches will grow where three new leaves were supposed to grow. Let those branches grow a little more and prune them again at the leaf nodes. Make sure your first pruning should be not excessive. These trees are resistant to heavy pruning, the more you prune the oleander, the more flowers it will give.
Oleander shrubs are excellent containerized plants to grow near pools and patios, where evergreen plants are desirable, and especially important for the continuous burst of flowers of purple, red, white yellow and pink. The flowers puff out a peasant subtle perfume, and as a landscape plant oleander shrubs grow into 15 foot bushy tree clumpers that are very salt water tolerant and especially are prominently valued in Coastal Georgia and Florida seaside resorts. The clean green leaves love sun.
