THIS EASY GROWING TROPICAL BEAUTY OFFERS UP AN ABUNDANCE OF VIBRANT, FRAGRANT BLOOMS
Many gardeners consider the Nerium Oleander ‘Calypso’ the easiest oleander to grow. Often used as an ornamental shrub, its blanket of blooms is offset by dark green leaves. When planted in a row, the Calypso makes a flowering privacy screen that attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
Incredibly hardy, the Calypso resists drought and extreme heat and keeps blooming summer through fall. It can even survive cold down to 20 degrees. Oleanders grow best in full sun, and can grow to 8 to 15 feet tall, and nearly as wide. Make sure to give these plants plenty of space to grow into.
Be aware the Oleander is considered to be incredibly poisonous. Factor this into your plans if your yard is frequented by small children.
