The Mandevilla is a tender tropical vine native to Central and South America, also known as Brazilian jasmine. Being a member of the Apocynaceae or Dogbane family, it’s related to both the Allamanda vine and the Plumeria. Mandevillas love full sun and bloom repeatedly mid-spring through fall. Plant in a well drained area and do not over water. Most are vigorous growers that can cover trellises or fences. Because they’re tender, it’s best to keep them potted so they can be moved during a freeze. They do well with small doses of a balanced water-soluble fertilizer every 2 weeks.
