i bought a mandevilla plant at your store last week and ive noticed that the front of the label says SHRUB. I looked on the back of the label and the care instructions list it is as a vine.

Is it a vine or a shrub?

The plant code on the label is THDA2564

It's both! If you train your mandevilla to climb up a trellis, it will be a vine; if you pinch and prune it regularly, it will develop many stems and can have the look of a shrub. Either way, it is free flowering and lovely. Enjoy!
