Rose bay, Nerium oleander, is a drought tolerant, evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean. There's a variety of cultivars to choose from, bearing pink, white or red flowers, in contrast with thin, pointed leathery leaves. Tender, it's best suited to growing in containers, which can be brought indoors in autumn.

Nerium oleander 'Casablanca' is a white-flowered rose bay, blooming over a long period, from summer to autumn. It's ideal for growing in a large pot on a sunny patio, and makes a striking conservatory specimen in winter. For best results keep Nerium oleander 'Casablanca' at a minimum winter temperature of 10C, and water sparingly.
