Mandevilla x amoena 'Alice du Pont'
Popular tropical vine with clear pink flowers and glossy-green leaves, suitable for pot culture in temperate climates. It holds a special place at our home, because it took a central position on our patio at the wedding ceremony where Amy and I exchanged our vows. Our original plant lived a few more years, but I always had a hard time getting it through the winter indoors - and it finally gave up.
||Dipladenia x amoena
||tender perennial vine (Z9-11)
||well drained soil, rich in organic content
Years later, we find ourselves gardening in the Houston area, where mandevilla stands a chance of making it through the winter. So we got ourselves a nice little specimen (no name, so probably not 'Alice du Pont', but it looks similar) and planted it next to our back fence. We'll report on its top and root hardiness as winters come and go.
In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
