Mandavillas are a group of tropical vines that are native to Central and South America. There are more than 100 different species and cultivars, along with many hybridized cultivars in varying shades of red, pink. These have formerly been classed as Dipladenias, but recently have been merged as Mandavillas.

Mandavillas are quick growing warm weather bloomers that will climb a trellis or other structure to height of approximately 12' to 15'. They can also be grown as a loose, open, sprawling, free standing shrub. Red Riding Hood is a fast growing, prolific, warm season bloomer with dark green, leathery, lance like foliage with showy, large, lightly fragrant, bright, neon pink trumpet shaped flowers with sunny yellow white rimmed throats, there are now many other hybrids available. We also carry a Mandavilla sanderi cultivar in red, as well the Mandavilla boliviensis in white, and the similar, related cultivar Urechites lutea in yellow.

Mandavilla splendens Red Riding Hood has many versatile uses in the tropical and subtropical landscape as well as adapting well to indefinite potted culture. Use them on trellis, fences, or other supports, let them spill outward over baskets, large pots, or plants, or give them a starring spot trained to an espalier frame.

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results with your new plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in a tropical to subtropical landscape. 

When the new pot has filled with roots and the plant is larger, then here a few hints for successful growing in the landscape in Zones 9, 10, and 11.  can be grown as a potted plant indefinitely.

  • Plant in fertile well drainin
  • Amend soil to provide a well drained, fertile, organic and slightly acid environment
  • Provide supplemental irrigation to maintain consistent moisture
  • Prune for shape and fullness while actively growing.
  • Secure to a trellis or other support.
  • Feed a good quality bloom boosting food spring and fall
  • Reduce watering during winter dormancy
  • Protect from frost and freeze.
