MANDEVILLA 'White Delite' PP8479
Plant Common Name
Mandevilla, White Delite Mandevilla
The lovely blooms of Mandevilla 'White Delite' add cool flash to sunny garden spots. This twining hybrid vine has shiny deep green lance-shaped leaves and bears many long-lasting, large blooms of white with yellow throats. Sometimes the flowers have a pale pink flush. 'White Delite' was bred by Richard J. Henny of Tavares, Florida and was chosen as a seedling of a self-pollinated Mandevilla 'Alice DuPont.'
Mandevilla are tropical favorites that originate from Central and South America. The woody vines are evergreen and have glossy green, opposite leaves that emit milky sap when broken. The fabulous flowers are funnel-shaped with five broad spreading petal lobes. They bloom all year around, if weather is warm and accommodating, and may occur singly or in clusters.
Plant Mandevilla in full to partial sun and moist, well-drained soil. They like warm temperatures and are frost sensitive. Where not hardy, they are best grown in containers that can be moved to a bright warm spot indoors to overwinter. They climb by twining stems, and need substantial support. Strong pergolas, trellises, or fences are best. Mandevilla are magnets for mealybugs and aphids, so check them often for infestations, particularly when grown indoors.
