Default Flower ID?

My wife got this potted plant for mothers day this year from her son.
it's a climbing vine of some sort but, we have no idea what the name of it is. Anybody here familiar with it?



and here is my version, I just can't leave well enough alone...

I've got an idea, but not sure. Can you take one of the foliage as well?

Well, that made it easier. But there is some confusion on the naming. It's a Mandevilla, alternatively a Dipladenia. It's still the same flower, the confusion is about the correct naming. I haven't found any common name in English. There are lots of varieties and hybrids, and more than 100 natural species from tropical America.

Glad to be of help. If you want to boast in front of your wife you can tell her the Swedish name is Bägarranka.
