|As you have discovered, mandevillas develop flowers on new growth. You can encourage new growth by pruning your mandevilla back each spring and then pinching out the tips of the stems to encourage additional new growth in mid-summer. This will keep your plant blooming from bottom to top all summer long. Enjoy!
