|Lore||Discovered in 2000 by legendary nurseryman Bruce Usrey at Monrovia Growers, California in a bed of Mandevilla amabilis 'Monite', an earlier exclusive introduction. Delicate soft-pink, fully double flowers emerge in clusters throughout the summer and provide an eye-catching display. Each flower is an amazing arrangement of 18-20 petals twirling out from the center measuring three to four inches in diameter. Let this beautiful new selection dance up your garden trellis for all to enjoy.|
