yellow oleander

Found this Yellow oleander at the local nursery, it had been cut back several times before.

I plan on cutting it back more, perhaps next spring to improve the ramifications on the secondary branches.

I need to wire this plant and re0position it to hide the large pruning scar. But that will be done next summer.

When is the latest I can prune this tree to still have blooms in the spring and summer? I have never seen an oleander with yellow flowers; they are quite fragrant as well. :clap:

Interesting! I hope you poked holes in the bottom of the container.

I can't comment on the care for the oleander, but I'll be eager to see where you take it. Keep us posted.
