|CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE SUN PARASOL CRIMSON MANDEVILLA. IS THIS A PERENNIAL? AND WILL IT GROW IN OUR CLIMATE? WOULD YOU USE THIS AS A BACKGROUND, BORDER OR ACCENT PLANT? THANK YOU

|Mandevillas are frost tender so keep yours in a container to enjoy outdoors this summer with the plan to take it indoors over the winter months. You can sink the pot into the soil to enjoy in your garden and then lift the pot to take indoors before the first frost. They are beautiful vining plants and if given bright light indoors, they will bloom indoors, as well. enjoy!
