General Pershing's Double Red Oleander

Nerium oleander 'General Pershing'

General Pershing Double Red Oleander boasts big beautiful double red blossoms in large bouquets at the end 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, here in Louisiana, froze to ground level during the winters of 2009-10 and 2010-11, they 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.

The fragrant very large 5" wide cupped flowers, when pollinated, produce the largest fruit of any of the Passion Fruits and mature to be 5-6" wide and 8-12" long (wow!). The Giant Granadilla, Passiflora quadrangularis, is a vigorous tropical vine with winged square stems and large oval leaves. It prefers a deep, well-drained, moist to average moist, fertile soil and a full to partly sunny position. High humidity and temperatures of 60oF or more are required for fruit set and pollination. The Giant Granadilla is considered to be self-sterile and so it requires another species or a different clone (ours are clonally propagated), like Passiflora phoenicia 'Ruby Glow', for cross pollination.
