Mandevilla laxa, commonly known as Chilean jasmine, is an ornamental plant in the genus Mandevilla of family Apocynaceae. It grows as a vine and is deciduous in cool climates. It can grow to 6 meters tall.
Strongly fragrant and vigorous, Mandevilla laxa (Chilean Jasmine) is a semi-evergreen, woody, twining climber with sprays of 3-15 large, creamy-white, funnel-shaped flowers, up to 3 in. across (8 cm), with broad petal lobes. The blossoms release a sweet vanilla fragrance that is most pronounced in the evening. Masses of heavily scented white flowers are produced in the summer. As it is not fully hardy and does not survive being frozen, in temperate zones it must be grown with the protection of glass, in an unheated greenhouse or conservatory with full sunlight.
