Pink Oleander in the Morning Sun

Nerium oleander

Oleander (Nerium oleander)
Location:  Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

One section of our property is bordered with a tall hedge of Oleander (Nerium oleander).  Oleander blossoms come in a variety of colors.  We have some white, yellow, red, and rose Oleanders, but most of ours are pale pink like the one in this photo.

Great shot of the oleander. I do have some of this in my yard. I've only ever seen the pink and white ones here in Cali. They use it a lot along freeways and roads. That yellow must be really nice.

Hi 2Sweet - They sure do use a lot of oleander along highways in California. We've noticed that, too. I'll post a pic of the yellow for you one of these days.

My favorite is the rose colored one, which has a "double" blossom.
