Quite a different animal than the big pink Mandevillas people spend big bucks on to grow as annuals! This vine is much hardier (to 10°F). It goes deciduous in the colder part of its range, but will stay fairly evergreen here by the Bay. Best of all, the WONDERFULLY FRAGRANT big white flowers, blooming from late Spring thru most of Summer and sometimes longer! An easygoing vine that doesn’t get overwhelmingly big – 10-15’, preferring regular water. Tolerates some neglect but appreciates good soil, some occasional compost and something to climb on. Can be pruned back hard in Winter before new growth begins again.
