Plants and Flowers of India and Pune

Mandevilla species are native to the Southwestern United States, Mexico, Central America, the West Indies, and South America. Many originate from the Serra dos Órgãos forests in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The genus was named after Henry Mandeville (1773-1861), a British diplomat and gardener.  The flowers come in a variety of colours, including white, pink, yellow, and red. These are climbing perennials. They need direct sunlight, but if heat is too strong keep in semi shade. Mandevilla need to be protected in winter, when the temperature drops below 10 degree centigrade bring them indoors but make sure that they get enough sunlight. Also they need well-drained soil.
