Oleander Hawk-moth larvae feed on  Oleander (Nerium oleander), Periwinkle (Vinca major),  Madagascar Periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus ),  Gardenia and Tabernaemontana.

They can be fed on Privet but the chances are you will have to follow these instructions.

Finely cut up some Periwinkle leaves and put in a jar of warm water and allow to soak for a day.The water will turn pale green, sprigs of Privet can then be sprayed with the water and allowed to dry.The larvae should then take to the Privet. Keep warm, about 20°c.This species is continually brooded.
