      Yes, it is a tropical from South America. Not winter hardy here. I’ve never grown it before but saw it last week at a garden center and decided to try it. Similar to mandevilla but more upright form instead of vining.

      Thanks Beth. Hope this plant likes hot and humid weather as described, because we’re surely getting steamy days here since July. Similar to mandevilla but more upright form instead of vining.

      Hi Kris, I’ve not grown this before but saw it at the garden center last week and since I needed something to fill a large pot outdoors I decided to try it. It might be interesting in a vase–will have to test.

      Hope the rain finds you. Can’t complain here. We’re getting some almost every day for which I am grateful. But since July it’s been noticeably hotter and humidity is ridiculous–think sauna.

      Thanks Cathy. Hope it blooms well all summer. I started a red border a few years ago but it’s actually full of reds and things that clash with reds!

      Glad to hear you’re enjoying this plant too Elizabeth. We’re heading into some serious heat for the next few days (100F tomorrow) so hope this one has had time to get established.
