Sun Parasol Garden Crimson Mandevilla is a dwarf variety that was bred for the flower bed. Their compact habit makes them perfect for patio pots, baskets, balconies as well as the flower bed! The beautiful trumpet-shaped blooms are around 3-4 inches in diameter on vining green foliage. Mandevilla climbs quickly up a trellis and blooms all summer long. If you are looking for a unique groundcover, Mandevilla can also be used as such. Trail it over a wall or from a hanging basket. These vigorous plants will lend a tropical look to your landscape.
Mandevilla are reasonably easy to grow and maintain. They tolerate varying weather conditions but are grown as annuals in areas where temperatures get below 40 degrees. When the weather turns colder, you can bring them indoors and keep them in a bright location.
