Dipladenia Growing Instructions

Grow dipladenia in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. A tropical plant, dipladenia doesn't tolerate frost. If you live in a cold-winter climate, it's best to consider dipladenia an exotic annual or bring it indoors as a houseplant for a sunny window until temperatures warm again in spring. In warm-winter areas that don't experience frost (or do so only rarely), dipladenia is an evergreen perennial vine that flowers on and off throughout the year.
