I bought 3 from you yesterday as the tag said it was a shrub, but everything I've seen online since describes it as a vine. Which is it?

Mandevilla Dipladenia Splendens can be trellised or allowed to sprawl on the ground. If it has nothing to climb the center will eventually become woody and you can prune the plant back to become a shrub. I've even seen some grown into tree forms, although it takes many years for the central stem to grow upright enough to support the top growth. Use it either way in your landscape.
