I believe that this is Oleander (Nerium oleander 'Hardy White'). Lin, will you look in the database and confirm whether or not you think it is?

Thank You!

Hi Kim,

I have no way of knowing an exact cultivar name since the plant was not labeled when it was purchased.

Ohh, ok, so you did not buy it from a nursery? Or you did, but for some reason they didn't label it?

Those database photos were taken in 2011 at a home we owned for 40 years. I don't recall what year we planted the Oleanders or where we purchased them. They could have been purchased at a local nursery, or at one of the local big box stores. Shrug! There's no way to know a cultivar name.

Hmm, I just hate not knowing what a plant is, don't you? Well, at least you get/got to enjoy its beauty!

Green Grin! Well, I do know what it is, it's Nerium oleander. Many plants are hybridized and never given a cultivar name and this may be one that never had a cultivar name.
