Rocktrumpet Overview

Bold and showy, mandevilla definitely makes a dramatic statement, this tropical vine bears a nonstop supply of large, trumpet-shaped blooms. It's also lovely in landscape beds and borders and is frequently used to climb up and over arbors, trellises, and mailbox posts. Gardeners in cold-winter climates can treat it as an annual or move it indoors and treat it as a houseplant until the spring, when all danger of frost has passed and it can go back outside. In frost-free regions, grow mandevilla as an evergreen perennial that flowers much of the year.
