Hi there! I have this flowering plant which was given up by my neighbor, and is now happily thriving in our garden, can someone ID it please? Took this photo today, as I saw her finally opening up one of her many buds..

Without seeing the whole plant, it appears to be a Mandevilla (formerly called Dipladenia).

Looks like a Dipladenia.

Oops, cross-posted with you Carol. Yes, Dipladenia or Mandevilla, I think.

Mandevilla sanderi..

Could be this one.. Mandevilla sanderi 'Sun Parasol Crimson'. Is it more red than shows? Cameras often don't show reds well.

Mandevilla sanderi hybrid, Sundaville Pink var. Sunmandecripi (sounds strange!)
