    Anna Hello…
    I live in Milwaukee Wi.. I purchased a (Monrovia) Red Fury Mandevilla in June 2009
    The plant did pretty well all summer.. The weather became cold here too fast.. I did not have time to bring it in.. It froze out there for 2 hard nights.. I transplanted it. I now have it in a sunny warm window.. It is not doing well.. I trimmed it back (luckily it is still green in the stem) I used miracle grow on it too.. It looks bad.. I am not ready to give up.. The plant was around 3 feet high, and gorgeous !! Any suggestions how I should baby this plant all winter??
    Thanks so much !

    Someone else ask me about it from your zone and I was certain it was not zoned so I went and looked it up on Monrovias site. they say zones 10 and 11 and you are like 5 I think. You would have to bring it inside to a sunny location. http://www.monrovia.com/learn/plant_catalog/detail.php?item_number=6127

  2. I’ve never heard of that, I’ll be on the lookout for it. I love mandevilla and bouganvilla, but they don’t winter over here, and they get too large to drag into the garage.

    I’m going to have to look for this one. I like finding new varieties for containers.

  4. This is my choice for a smaller trellis ( only growing about 36″ ) this year. Thank you for your wonderful information. I am going to book mark you in my favorites on my garden blog so others can check out your FABULOUS site!

    Happy Gardening

    I’ve never heard of this plant…I love mandevilla’s but I don’t have much luck with them…I guess they just don’t care for Minnesnowta!

    Thinking of you!
    Hugs,

    Anna, If I had more sun in my garden, there’d be one more plant to overwinter in the basement! No matter how impractical, I can’t seem to resist those tropicals.

    I saw that variety at Home Depot, I would have bought one but I already have the vine. I like the idea that it does not grow long, and it easily overwintered indoors.
    They are pretty and I am very tempted to go and get one.

    Very pretty flowers, I thought about getting one last summer, then summer was over. Guess I waited too long to get one. oops
