The vine of this mandevilla is so vibrant green and strong.....so full of life. It grows about an inch a day....it is so cool to watch the vine grow past the trellis stick........I love the peach fuzz that you can see on the virgin vine. the leaves are sooo green- they are almost fluorescent. While other plants melt in Florida's hot summers, mandevilla (Mandevilla spp.) is a tropical vine that almost seems to smile at the heat, putting out colorful trumpet-shaped blooms along its woody, twining stems.
One of the most recognized varieties is 'Alice Dupont', which produces medium pink flowers up to four inches wide and two inches long. Other varieties are available that produce flowers in red or various shades of pink. The white-blooming Mandevilla boliviensis is a favorite of many gardeners. A few yellow flowering vines are often called yellow mandevilla, though they're technically different plants (Urichtes lutea or Pentilinon luteum).
The stems of larger varieties like 'Red Velvet' can reach up to twenty feet long in a single season and are great for growing up trellises and arbors. The more compact cultivars like Sun Parasol� 'Burgundy' are well suited for growing over a mailbox. They're also stunning in hanging baskets or containers as their stems creep over the edges.
