Leaf scorch is an insect-borne disease that can kill oleander. If you notice wart-like growths the plant may have bacterial gall. Root rot and insect damage are environmental problems, but they can present symptoms that seem like a disease.

Most dis-ease of the oleander comes from fungus or bacteria. Nerium Canker is caused by a bacteria that causes lesions on all plant parts. A fungus, called Gloeosporium causes the plant to die. Another disese is Xyella fastidiosa which causes leaf scorch. All are untreatable and need to be replaced.
