This type of Mandevilla will save you space and energy, as its low maintenance and smaller size won’t compromise its characteristic blooming beauty.
Mandevilla, commonly known as Rocktrumpet, is a genus that comprises a range of species. There are two varieties of Mandevillas, vining or climbing and mounding or non-climbing. This means mounding varieties will remain arranged in tidy small mounds, giving them a bush-like appearance and making them easy to identify alongside other Mandevillas. They’ll also take up less space, making them a great alternative for those who can’t accommodate vining varieties.
Depending on the species, they’ll display a variety of colors, from bright pink to deep red to white. Flower shapes can also vary, and they usually bear numerous flowers, typically towards late summer. Due to their tropical origins, they have glossy green leaves, and although they can be grown as houseplants, they tend to enjoy spending the warmer months outside and only be brought indoors in colder months.
They’re low maintenance, and most varieties are usually smaller than 18 inches (45 cm) tall. They’ll attract wildlife, such as butterflies and hummingbirds.
