Notes:

Our family went to Wilmington Beach NC a few summers ago, and I saw this bush in a landscape at a shopping strip mall. It stood about 6-8 feet tall. Is this a bush that is harder in the Monroe, GA area?

    This is oleander. It is a wonderful old plant and does well in the South. In Monroe, it would be best on the SE corner of your house, but it does require as much sun as possible. Requires little watering when once established. It comes in some really nice colors.

    Try this on
    Nerium oleander
    Common shrub on the coast. Probably not so much in Monroe.

    It is oleander. It dies to the ground in middle
    GA,but will often return from roots. Not so in NorthGa. It can’t take the winter here in Cherokee County.

    One note on the oleander. Do not burn. The smoke and the sap is poisonous. There have been several stories over the years in Florida of people who decided to burn the bushes and became severely sick
