Hard to say because everyone's yard/light/soil is different.

Do you have a neighbor that has a similar yard with healthy plants?
What is growing well in your neighborhood in similar conditions?
Drive around and take a look.

As far as nurseries, try MRT in Englewood. Very knowledgeable staff.

Or, look online to see when the master gardeners from the county extension office will be at a Lowes or library near you so yoo can bring them pictures and ask specifically what might work for you.

Also make sure the plant is NATIVE to FL.

Otherwise no matter how pretty it looks the first month, it will die. I guarantee it.

Oleanders are also toxic and can be fatal if eaten by humans (especially children) or pets. Even the smoke from burning them can be toxic.

Oleander is toxic but not to the caterpillar that can eat every leave on the plant over night. And besides, Oleander does not fill out to become a privacy fence.
