The Q&A Archives: nerium oleanders

Question: How far apart do I plant my oleander plants and how fast do they grow?

Answer: Oleanders grow fast once established, at least 12" per year. They grow about 10' wide so you can space them that far for a hedge, or closer (about 6') if you want the hedge to grow together quickly. Most gardeners keep them trimmed with hedge trimmers to encourage dense growth that fills in fast.
