Mandevilla x amoena ‘Alice du Pont’

Mandevilla x amoena ‘Alice du Pont'

Previously Dipladenia splendens, this climber is a woody-stemmed, twining creeper with large, leathery, leaves with a wrinkled or ruffled surface. It is of garden or hybrid origin, bred from species that originate from South and Central America. Large, trumpet-shaped, pink flowers are produced in racemes for most of the year and this floriferous trait makes it one of the most spectacular flowering plants for warm, sub-tropical gardens. A white form and a deep, rosy-pink variant are also available on the market from time to time. Plant Mandevilla in rich, well-drained soil in an open, sunny position with free air movement and no competition from surrounding plant growth. With their immense beauty, Mandevillas are certainly stand-alone plants – grow them on fences, trellises, garden arches, metal frames and even in large hanging baskets. Prune back hard in early spring every 3 to 4 years to rejuvenate the plant and promote neat, tidy new growth with an abundance of flowers.
