Mandevilla is a tender woody vine much beloved by gardeners in warmer climates. This variety provides a nonstop bounty of huge trumpet shaped white flowers with gold throats, up to 4 inches across and arranged in racemes (flower clusters). Mandevilla blooms heaviest in summer and sporadically throughout the rest of the year. Fuzzy young stems twine around supports eventually scrambling to heights up to 10 feet. The handsome leathery leaves are dark green, up to 8 inches long and 3 to 4 inches wide. Given adequate care, mandevilla is pest free and fast growing. Parts of plant are poisonous if ingested.
