The Oleander Bush Calypso Pink is great as an accent, border, background, hedge, screen or specimen, or in containers. This plant attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
The Oleander Bush Calypso Pink grows best with full sun exposure. For watering, this plant is drought tolerant so water as needed (1 to 2 inches per week is good) and do not over saturate or over water. If the leaves turn yellow this means the plant is receiving too much water. Overall, this plant is extremely low maintenance!
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
