The new blooming season was started off on May 5, 2013, by Grandiflorum. It is indeed not planted outdoors, but rather is still in the plastic-sheeting shelter. It isn’t
particularly distinctive, either – but even so, it’s the first oleander flower this year.
The second oleander to bloom (on May 5, 2013) was Splendens Giganteum. Indeed, it is still protected by the plastic-sheeting house, but is not in a pot. Rather, it is beginning
its second season planted directly in the ground.
