Mandevilla http://geepo.notlong.com 14 June 2008 Mandevilla This plant has been grown the last three years. Usually I dig, prune heavily, and put in pot sufficient for the root ball, and place in dim light in the basement, just keeping it alive, and replant in the Spring. In 2007 I left it oudoors and it didn't survive, which was not suprising. This plant is native of South America - Bolivia and Brazil. This plant was purchased from a greenhouse supplier. The plant can be keep indoors and blooms all year. During the summer on the side of the deck, it always has flowers, which are clean looking and delightful.
