Soeur Agnes White Oleander
Soeur Agnes or Sister Agnes is a free flowering Oleander that produces large clusters of 1", lightly fragrant, white blossoms for much of the summer and is intermediate in growth habit. Oleanders are an excellent choice for coastal regions with excellent drought and salt tolerance. Use them as windbreaks, as a screen, or as part of a shrub border and they can even be trained into tree standards. Sister Agnes is not as cold hardy as some oleander cultivars and is likely best suited for zones 9 and warmer.

With few major pests and diseases and their adaptability to soil conditions few shrubs are more reliable than Oleanders when you have a hot area in full sun. Whether its baking on the edge of concrete or the salty soils of the Gulf Coast these plants are nearly perfectly adapted for use in these areas. Oleanders make good container plants and can be trained into tree standards.

General Pershing's Double Red Oleander
View
General Pershing boasts big beautiful double red blossoms in large bouquets at the ends of weeping stems. One petal of each flower is often streaked with a bright contrasting white. This beautiful double red oleander is considered fairly cold hardy and while the stems of ours froze to ground level during the winters of 2009-10 and 2010-11, it did return from the roots. Many others have mentioned that General Pershing is probably best left to large containers in areas north of zone 9,10, and 11 where it can grow to become a fairly large evergreen shrub or small weeping tree standard. Item# 977.
