Planting and flowering details
Show moreMandevilla is a climber that grows well in a large pot on the patio or decking. Use a pot or planter with holes in the base to aid drainage. Cover the bottom with a layer of broken pot or gravel. This will provide good drainage. Fill the pot with some regular potting compost, place the root ball at the appropriate depth, fill the rest of the pot with compost and press firmly. Place the Mandevilla in a fairly sunny or semi-shaded area although preferably away from direct sunshine.
Combining MandevillaChilean Jasmine is capable of climbing from the ground along a fence or any climbing support. It combines beautifully with the passion flower (Passiflora).
Show moreChilean Jasmine requires plenty of water. Rainwater is preferred since it contains less calcium. The soil must remain fairly moist. On hot summer days, it needs to be watered on a day-to-day basis. During the summer, frequently add Phostrogen food when watering. Due to the high levels of humidity, we recommend watering the Mandevilla moderately during the growing time keeping the soil moist, but do not allow the plant to stand in water for too long a period. The shoots can be left to hang or if planted against a fence, regularly tie the shoots for support. Cut off long stems that are growing above the climbing frame or train them to grow back down. After the flowering period, trim the shoots down to approximately half their size.
Keeping Mandevilla through winterIn autumn, cut the long stems off the plant and water less often. The Mandevilla is not a hardy plant, but it can be moved indoors for protection from frost and kept at 12.6 degrees Celsius. Keep the root ball on the dry side during winter. In spring from March onwards it can be watered more frequently. In mid-May the Chilean Jasmine is able to be left outside day and night.
Show moreThe Mandevilla is one of the best patio plants. The Chilean Jasmine is a climbing plant in Brazil with beautiful, exotic flowers. With proper care, the vines it can grow up to 3 metres high. The pink and red flowers appear between summer and late autumn. They give off a light fragrance. The flowers are easily recognised as a member of the Periwinkle family (Vinca). The glossy, dark green leaves are very decorative.
The Mandevilla was once known as Dipladenia.
