Numerous European oleander cultivars and in Europe commercially available cultivars are represented at the OLEANDER HOUSE.

 

The colors range from pure white through light pink, dark pink, red to dark red; from pale yellow to vanilla-yellow, and several shades of salmon. In each color there are both single-flowered and double-flowered varieties, sometimes hose-in-hose (that is, two superimposed corollas) forms as well.

The growth habits are just as varied – from dwarf forms to large, wide bushes or trees.

Many of the oleanders are young or just a few years old, but there are some specimens here which are decades old; some of then over 60 years old.
