Today I bought a few more "Mandevilla" plants to hang on the front porch. The space is large enough to just let them take over and fall as they may. I'm not sure about the size of the hanging basket, might need to be larger, but they will get both sun and shade throughout the day, so hopefully they should thrive.
Mandevillas develop spectacular flowers in warm climates.
The flowers come in a variety of colors, including white, pink, yellow, and red. As climbers, Mandevillas can be trained against a wall or trellis to provide a leafy green and often flowering picture of beauty
I have several on the side of my house that have flowers all year and climb up their trellis', but I thought I'd try to use them in a hanging basket. We will see how they fall and trail? Or will they want to climb up in the eves?
This variety is in the periwinkle family.
I've been having fun decorating the porch and this beauty is a plus.
It's flower and planting season where I live.
Now I need to go find pumpkins for the up-coming season.
I may never get used to living in Florida because gardening is so different from living in the north.
I say that with a smile!
