This is a Mandevilla plant I saw as I was enjoying Yard Sales on Saturday. This beauty is eight years old.


    1. thanks they really like the heat of course being tropical but this prolonged raspail we’ve had has limited the number of blooms. We try to water it but you just in a pot can’t get enough water in it like it was in the ground. Because underground they can tap deeper Roots will grow deeper when it’s dry and try to find groundwater.

    2. Text Jaz we really like them. Of course they have enjoyed the continued 90° weather we’ve had but the lack of rain is kept the blooms from being as prolific as we like.
