|I have two 5 year old pink dwarf oleander. One is beautiful, one is sparse on the inside, has less flowers, and the ones it does have are not as bright. Could it just be the plant? What should I try?

|It could be the plant or it could just need some pruning. If you cut the oleanders back after they finish blooming new growth will develop on the insides of the branches as well as at the branch tips. Pruning back after each period of bloom will keep your oleanders full and dense instead of sparse and leggy.
