Mandevilla are among the garden's most elegant vines, producing showy, trumpet-shaped flowers that bring a tropical flair where every they are planted. They can be grown in containers or flower beds alike. They are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, as well as other beneficial pollinators, though care should be taken around pets as parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested.
Mandevilla, pronounced man-de-VEE-uh, is commonly called Brazilian Jasmine. They prefer a phosphorous-rich fertilizer, we recommend using Jobe's Tomato Spikes. In very warm climates they can overwinter outdoors, but most are containerized and then brought inside during the winter months.
