In case you don't live in a warm winter climate, here are some guidelines to keeping your oleander plant alive during the colder months.

Step 1: Plant in containers
Plant oleander in 10- to 20-gallon containers that you can move into the house.

Step 2: Prune the plants
Let the plant finish its fall blooming cycles, which is normally by early fall. Prune away any dead branches.

Step 3: Bring the plants indoors
Bring the plant indoors. Place it in a location where it will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.

Oleander is poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.

Step 4: Water
Water the oleander once a week. Keep the leaves hydrated by misting them with water.

Step 5: Move the plants outdoors
Move the plant back outdoors in late spring or early summer, once there is no further risk of frost damage. Now you can enjoy the beauty of your oleander plant year-round.
