Dipladenias

Dipladenia is in the Mandevilla family but has a different growth pattern. The  foliage is somewhat smaller and the plant is more shrub-like Mandevilla vines climb up vertical structures to seek the canopy light. Dipladenia is a bushier plant whose stems grow down and hang. The two plants have similar brightly colored flowers, but mandevilla has a larger flower. Both plants need the same bright light and dipladenia care is the same as that for the mandevilla vine. The tubular shape of the flower is a natural for attracting hummingbirds.
