The Q&A Archives: Care for a Mandevilla Evergreen (Climber)

Question: My plant is doing wonderful. It is potted in a hanging basket. Should I plant it in the ground? Will it survive the winter or should I leave it in the basket and bring it indoors in the fall? It is starting to climb on my wooden fence that I have it hanging on.

Answer: This plant will not survive the winter outside so if you want to keep it from year to year you should plan on bringing it indoors in the fall. You can trim it back when you bring it in for the winter so if it climbs a fence outside it is not a problem.
