Mandevilla vine (rocktrumpet plant) has become a popular spring garden center item over the past few years. These vigorous plants make an excellent spring and summertime addition to any landscape, patio or trellis vines and overwinter indoors.
The Mandevilla plant got its name from Henry Joseph Mandeville a gardener and British diplomat in 19th-century Argentina. You’ll easily recognize this lovely tropical plant by its glossy oval leaves, colorful trumpet-shaped flowers, and enthusiastic vining habits. The Mandevilla vine is excellent for growing up arches, use as pergola plants and growing as a trellised potted flowering vine on a patio. The plant is easy to care.
