Mandevilla 'Red Velvet'
icon
'Red Velvet' (PPAF) was developed in Florida using the Park Seed Mandevilla strains. The 5-inch blooms open rich pink, darkening to intense carmine-red as they mature on vigorous 7- to 10-foot vines.

A tangle of tropical flowering vines can be a beautiful sight, but be careful to plant the right type of vine for its intended effect. Climbing vines with curling tendrils can rapidly cover a fence or wall, as well as your roof, phone lines, and any neighboring tree! Plant them where they can't grab anything but their intended structure. Twining vines without tendrils generally are easier to control, but will usually require tying, hooks, or other mechanical means of attachment to a support, at least until they are established on the framework. Also, certain very prolific vines will outgrow and take over the slower ones in a combination planting, so keep competitors evenly matched.
