Fragrant Oleander

Can fragrant oleanders grow in Florida? I have only found the non-fragrant kind. It seems to be available in Texas and the south west states but I have never heard of it being available in Florida. If so, where would one buy a fragrant oleander? Nurseries don't seem to be familiar. Mail order perhaps?

The fragrant oleanders have double flowers and no seeds. There use to be one on the corner here with the other kind. I love that smell! Sorry don't know where to get one but if you can find one maybe take cuttings for yourself.

The double yellow is fragrant and you see that sometimes at the box stores. I got mine at Walmarts years ago.

RE: Fragrant Oleander

Thanks for the good news. Glad to see they can grow here. I will see if I can track down some locally. I didn't want to start driving around if they didn't exist here. Thanks for the help.
