Wife Kittie shelled out $12 for this Mandevillea vine in late spring... and we found a pot for about twice that. We did have to bring it indoors about half a dozen times until the weather finally warmed, becausetheplantdoesn't like nights below 40 degrees F.

Now it's bringing us tropical splendor. Maybe we'll be able to build a winter glass house -- seems a shame to let it die off with frost...

First time I've seen both double and single flowers on the same vine...

I liked the plant and the shots also and hope you work something out regarding it's survival this winter.

My suggestion of emigrating to Tasmania (or the plant's native Argentina) and taking the pet plant with us has not gone over well.

A couple of sources say it will live over winter with little or no light, so we'll probably try stuffing it into our basement.

And I've discovered the plant is "mandevilla," not "mandevillea"... I used to be able to spell.

To top off its charms, it has a spicy fragrance, a touch of cloves and vanilla.

Thanks all,

Dave

Don't know why that wouldn't go over. Sounds good to me Dave!
