Mandevilla (sometimes known as Dipladeniais a lush, tropical climber that flowers flamboyantly all year round In warmer climates. Hardy and versatile, it flowers in shades of deep burgundy, scarlet, through all shades of pink and white. It is great in large pots where it can bring an instant lush, tropical look to poolsides and outdoor entertaining areas.

A sunny position is desirable for the best flowering. Rich, well-drained soil and plenty of moisture during the growing season can be favourable. Originating from tropical South America, it loves a Cairns or Brisbane climate but will grow well as far south as Melbourne if given a warm position and shelter from frost. It is likely to stop flowering in winter in cooler regions.
