Mandevilla is a bold vining plant that adds a tropical flair to any outdoor space. The flowers are showy and fragrant and can come in large and small blooms depending on the variety. These are great climbing vines for trellises and arbors that will add color to your patio through the fall.


Mandevilllas bloom best with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Morning sun is ideal with protection from afternoon sun that can damage the flowers will have your plant thriving. Growing Mandevilla in containers is a great way to ensure they are getting proper care. You can move the container to the best spot for the time of day.

When indoors, water your Mandevilla every week or so. Check the soil regularly and water when it is dry to the touch.


Use a liquid fertilizer every two weeks from spring to fall. Or use a slow-release fertilizer every month.
