    Maintenance Notes: 

    Mandevilla needs plenty of sun and does best when it is hot.  It will struggle if temperatures are lower than 45 degrees. It can be overwintered indoors with appropriate care.  It will go out of flower in the winter and may drop leaves to help it survive the winter. Do not over water in the winter, which is problematic.  Keeping the soil on the dry side can help mitigate root rot issues. Use good, well-drained potting soil with Mandevilla. Spider mites and mealy bugs can be problematic.  Treat as needed. Your local garden center can help you choose an appropriate treatment method.

    • Beautiful flowers and pretty deep green leaves make this one of my favorites. The hummingbirds love the red and the pink one too. I grow Mandevilla in a container in my zone 8a garden and bring it indoors for the winter. Even without flowers it makes a pretty houseplant.
