Twines 6 to 8 feet high!

Among the most vigorous Mandevillas, it takes off quickly and flowers until frost.
The biggest Mandevilla blooms we've ever seen appear on the Giant varieties of Sun Parasol®, the exciting new series of ultra-vigorous, heavy-blooming sun-lovers. This quick-growing twining vine opens brilliant red flowers 4 to 6 inches across -- and it does this from early summer all the way until first frost!

The Sun Parasols® were originally bred for color-fastness and better branching, and Giant Crimson certainly keeps its bright hues no matter how sunny and hot the weather gets. Ideal for full sun and long summers, this South American native puts up with humidity, resists pests and diseases, and generally looks terrific over many months. Even if your growing season is short, these get-up-and-grow plants arrive at your doorstep ready to climb and bloom as long as the temperature remains above freezing!

Grown as an annual in large containers everywhere north of zone 9, Giant Crimson reaches 6 to 8 feet tall within a single season (somewhat smaller if your planter or tub has restricted root room) and branches 1 to 2 feet wide. Give it a trellis or other vertical support and watch it take off! The large, deep green foliage is scored with veins and very glossy, keeping the plant handsome even when out of bloom.

This Mandevilla is very easy to grow, asking only for adequate water to keep up its flower show. It does not like to dry out, and appreciates the occasional feeding to stimulate even more bud production. But it can put up with a lot of neglect, too -- the perfect porch, patio, or deck plant for busy gardeners who don't always tend to their plants as often as they'd like!
