Oleander #1

I 'stole' this oleander from my mom in 2008.

Right after the theft I repotted it and cut all unneeded branches.


In 2009 it got this dense - still not enough.


And here this week after defoliation.


Wired, styled, and photographed.

How does it handle root reduction. I plan to dig one from my garden...not sure how I should proceed.

Firgit to ask is it a slow grower...I plan to do leader selection/growing in the ground, and some primary branches. Then ground layer it to get better roots for nebari...Any advise?

No, it's a plant easy to grow. It grows fast and it handles rood reduction well.

Thanks Nik! I shall show you some pictures soon. Mine is a dwarf oleander...and 20 years old, grown in the ground. So I want to do it justice.
