|You can try to remove the suckers but oleanders tend to try to colonize an area by sending up lots of new sprouts. You can leave them alone or you can cut them down to ground level. Don't prune your plants at this time. Wait until spring. If there is winter damage you can prune it off in the spring and your plants will quickly recover. Best wishes with your oleanders!
