Oleander is an evergreen shrub that blooms in pink, red, yellow or white. Native to Mediterranean region, oleander adds an interesting element to your landscaping with its shiny, deep green leaves. In most situations, oleander is grown from cuttings rather than seeds, but growing from seeds can be easily done as well. Like other parts of the oleander, the seeds are poisonous, so make sure your children or pets do not have access to them.
