The oversized flowers range from 6 inches to 9 inches and some can stay open more than three times longer than older hibiscus varieties.
Mandevilla varieties come in climbing varieties perfect for trellises (the most beautiful privacy screen you can think of!) and bushy types that are perfect for containers, any sunny spot in your landscape, or as an underplanting for tree-type hibiscus. Their flowers come in gorgeous shades of red, pink, and white.
