Red Oleander, scientifically known as Nerium oleander 'Red', is a vibrant evergreen shrub or small tree that is cherished for its striking red flowers and robust, dark green foliage. Native to the Mediterranean region, this ornamental plant has become a popular landscaping choice in warm climates globally, thanks to its beauty, versatility, and resilience. Red Oleander is ideal for creating dramatic visual impact in gardens, serving functions ranging from hedges and screens to striking standalone specimens.

Growing to about 8 to 12 feet in height and 6 to 10 feet in width, Red Oleander forms a dense, bushy shape that can be easily shaped through pruning. It blooms prolifically from spring through fall, showcasing clusters of fragrant, red flowers that attract pollinators while adding a splash of color to the landscape.

Adapted to full sun, Red Oleander thrives in well-draining soil and is notably drought-tolerant once established, making it a suitable option for water-wise gardens. It is also salt-tolerant, making it a good choice for coastal areas. While it requires minimal maintenance, occasional watering during extended dry periods and fertilization in the spring can promote healthier growth and more abundant flowering.

In landscaping, Red Oleander is often used for its decorative appeal in a variety of settings, including as a privacy screen, windbreak, or ornamental feature in urban and suburban landscapes. Its tolerance for poor soil and challenging conditions makes it a valuable addition to gardens in regions with hot, dry climates.

It's important to note that all parts of the Oleander plant are highly toxic if ingested, and care should be taken to plant it away from areas frequented by pets and children. The sap can also cause skin irritation in sensitive individuals, so gloves are recommended when handling the plant.

Overall, Red Oleander is a versatile and striking choice for adding vibrant color, texture, and privacy to garden landscapes. Its ease of care, adaptability to a range of conditions, and long blooming season make it a favored option for gardeners and landscape designers in suitable climates.
