Mandevilla boliviensis (White Dipladenia) is a woody-stemmed, twining tropical vine with sprays of 3-7 large, white, funnel-shaped flowers, up to 3 in. across (8 cm), with orange-yellow throats. Blooming periodically in summer, the blossoms contrast against the foliage of elliptic, shiny dark green leaves, 4 in. long (10 cm). A favorite of many gardeners.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 3-10 ft. tall (90-300 cm) and 3-6 ft. wide (90-180 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun in moist, well-drained soils. Appreciates some afternoon shade in hot summer areas.
  • Excellent choice for arbors, trellises, pergolas and containers.
  • Virtually disease free. Keep an eye out for whiteflies, spider mites and mealybugs.
  • Pinch to promote shrubby growth. Prune in late winter. Shorten sideshoots to within 3-4 buds of the permanent framework of branches to promote more compact growth and encourage the formation of flower buds.
  • Propagate by seed sown with heat in spring, or root softwood cuttings in late spring or semi-ripe cuttings in summer, with bottom heat.
  • May cause mild stomach upset if eaten, sap may cause skin irritation. Wear gloves and other protective equipment when handling.
  • Native to Bolivia and Ecuador.
