Mandevila is a semi-woody and fickle vine, internationally known for its beautiful flowering. It has evergreen leaves, coriaceous, elliptical to lanceolate, with well-marked veins and dark green in color. Its flowering is more intense in spring and summer, but it can last throughout the year in regions with warm climate 

In the inflorescences, in small racemes, the beautiful and striking trumpet-shaped flowers emerge, huge in some varieties, reaching 10 centimeters in diameter. Dipladenia flowers are usually simple and pink in color with a yellow center, but they can be doubled and completely pink, red or white.

 

It is very rustic and precocious, flowering from a young age. Due to the fact that its foliage is not very dense, it is suitable for covering light or structured supports such as arbors, railings, trellises, arches, fences and columns, among others. Its size is medium, reaching about 2 to 3 meters in height. It can also be grown in large pots and flower beds, as long as it is supported. Its perfume is quite peculiar and resembles the aroma of tutti-frutti gum. It should be grown in full sun or partial shade, in fertile, draining soil, enriched with organic matter and moderately irrigated. Does not tolerate waterlogging, intense cold or frost. It can be grown on the coast, tolerating the salinity of the soil. Monthly fertilization, rich in phosphorus, in the hot months stimulates intense flowering. It is tolerant to pruning, which should preferably be carried out in winter.
