Description

MandevillaMandevilla is an evergreen, semi-climber with deep green eliptical leaves and red flowers with overlapping petals, blooming from spring until late summer. This plant is a genus of plants belonging to the family Apocynaceae, the Dogbane family. It consists of about 100 species, mostly tropical and subtropical flowering vines.

Mandevilla is native to Central and South America and many Mandevillas come originally from the Serra dos Órgãos forests in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The flowers come in a variety of colours, including white, pink, yellow, and red. As climbers, Mandevillas can be trained against a wall or trellis to provide a leafy green and often flowering picture of beauty.

Care Tips

Mandevillas develop spectacular flowers in warm climates. This plant prefers warm water that does not have a high acid content. Feed the plant once annually, in the spring. Prune the Dipladenia during and at the end of the growing season. At the end of the season, plant the clipped shoots in pots and wrap the pots in plastic at the bottom.
