Description for Strophanthus gratus

Strophanthus gratus is a woody liana that can grow up to 25 metres, with a trunk diameter of up to 10 centimetres. Its fragrant flowers feature a white corolla, topped by red or purple colour, with pink corona lobes.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Climbing Oleander, Cream Fruit Yellow February to March 9.00 to 11.00 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall. All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil. Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot. Most plants are grafted onto the common rootstock because of its superior hardiness.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun to part shade Well drained soil Medium 30 to 40 degrees C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Strophanthus gratus

  • Epsom salts along with your fertilizer; the magnesium sulfate will encourage new growth from the bottom of the bush Prune plants every spring and destroy all old or diseased plant material. Wear elbow-length gloves that are thick enough to protect your hands from thorns or a clumsy slip, but flexible enough to allow you to hold your tools.
