The Q&A Archives: Starts From Oleanders

Question: I would like to know if it is possible to make starts off of an Oleander bush?

Answer: Yes, it is, but note that all parts of oleander are poisonous. Be careful not to inhale any particles or get juice in open cuts, etc. You can root 3-inch cuttings in water or in soil. When they've rooted well and have put on some growth, transplant them to a nursery bed for a year, and the following year, to their permanent location. It takes about two years to get a plant to flower.
