The Calypso Oleander is perhaps the most popular and widely recognized of the several hundred Nerium Oleander cultivars.  

Flowers are deep, clear, bright hot pink to nearly red.  It is a profuse and perpetual bloomer from late spring to fall, or even into early winter, depending on location.  The colorful flowers grace a vigorous, large growing, upright shrub.

Oleanders are considered winter hardy from zone 8B & South, and can withstand dips in temperature into the low to mid 30's without much complaint.  Temps into the upper 20's cause slight damage and lower temps and longer duration will knock them back substantially and they resprout in the spring.  They are not suitable out doors for climates with prolonged temps below freezing, but can be grown potted and wintered over indoors. 

The Calyspo Oleander can be used in the tropical and subtropical landscape and garden in a variety of interesting and attractive ways.  It makes an excellent hedge, boundary or buffer planting, puts down deep roots that aid in erosion control on embankments and slopes.  Has a high degree of salt tolerance, including in locations that get salt spray.  They make excellent background plantings in mixed perrenial beds as well as host plants in butterfly gardens.

Grower Notes *All parts are generally considered toxic. 
 

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results with your new plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in a tropical to subtropical landscape. 

When the new pot has filled with roots and the plant is larger, then here a few hints for successful growing in the landscape in Zones 9, 10, and 11.  can be grown as a potted plant indefinitely.

  • Plant in fertile well draining, slightly acidic soil soil in the full sun. Amend with high quality organic material as needed.
  • Locate in full sun to very lightly dappled shade.
  • Provide supplemental irrigation.
  • Feed a good quality, slow release, bloom boosting fertilize with the initial planting and twice yearly in the early Spring and early Fall thereafter. 
  • Supplement with a water soluble plant food in between feeding.
  • Prune lightly and often when young to encourage branching and after flowering to promote uniform shape and control size.
  • Protect from frost and freeze until very well established. 
  • In Zone 8B, plant early in the season and protect until well established.

*Toxicity information generally known in the horticultural trade and gardening circles, if known, is provided for reference purposes only.  Medical and/or Horticulture experts in the field of Plant Toxicology should be consulted for specific and reliable information.
