MESS AROUND WITH YOUR MANDEVILLA

Mandevilla vines have become grocery store staples like that of milk and bread.  Sure, there are occasions when this vernacular garden vine lends itself to being plopped in a pot and left to its own climbing devices.  But, this happens all too often, and Mandevilla could soon be renamed Mundanevilla.   If you absolutely cannot pass this plant up, at least take your design vision up a notch.  I incorporated a white flowering variety with a color combination of yellow, maroon and blue-grey.  This ensemble is sophisticated and unexpected.  Now, it's your turn to make your Mandevilla vine turn heads.
