Tropical Breeze™ Velvet Red Mandevilla

Mandevilla x 'Velvet Red'

SKU
43847
Deep velvet red flowers bloom early and abundantly against the dark, glossy green foliage of this tropical shrub-like vine. This particularly bushy variety can be supported with a trellis to add height, or left to form a dense mound. A great choice for hanging baskets or containers, with or without support. Evergreen in frost-free regions; treat as a summer annual in cooler regions.
