species, hybrids and cultivars

Synonyms: Dipladenia
Family: Apocynaceae

Given our harsh conditions, growing plants well in containers can be difficult, especially in full sun positions. Dipladenia (now actually included in the genus Mandevilla) are ideal for growing in containers in our climate. They are weak climbers but can be kept pruned to a shrubby form.

Other Mandevilla have a more vigorous climbing tendancy.
