Thanks Sherry ... I love this striped Mandevilla but I just noticed that photo is a bit blurry so I need to take a few more and try to get a clearer shot!

Wow, I haven't seen this one. I have Sun Parasol Crimson. Which one of the Sun Parasol series is this?

I have the Sun Parasol Crimson and Sun Parasol Pink so when I saw the Stars & Stripes I couldn't resist! I used to have the Sun Parasol White but lost it to a winter freeze a few years ago.

Wow! What a perfect shot! Not blurry at all, Lin, except for the background, which makes the bloom really pop out, crisp as anything.

I need this Mandevilla! This is something I won't mind moving in and out of the house during the frosty season.

Thanks zuzu! I have trouble sometimes remembering to move plants in and out during cold winter nights. Sun Parasol Crimson and Sun Parasol Pink survived the last two winters outdoors in a protected area. They both looked pretty ratty this spring but have recuperated somewhat nicely. I like this red/white version so much that I will probably make a point to bring it in during cold weather. I've been contemplating planting them all three together in the same pot to let them intertwine on the trellis.
