The mandevilla vine thrives in growing zones 9 and 10. This vine grows best in partially sunny locations with well-drained soil and thorough air circulation.
The mandevilla vine reaches heights of up to 15 feet and is a popular choice for trellises and landscaping walls. When planted away from vertical structures, it provides thick ground cover. Mandevilla vines are also suitable for container gardening.
This plant produces vibrant pink, red and white flowers that last from spring to autumn. Some mandevilla species have no odor, while others have a powerful gardenia-like fragrance. Mandevilla vines do not require extensive maintenance, but they benefit from bi-weekly application of high-phosphorous fertilizer.
