This vertically growing vine with shiny green foliage becomes a flowering machine as soon as spring days turn warm, and throughout the sizzling summer months. The bright, clear pink flowers stay true to color, never fading in the hot sun like some Mandevilla. Blooming from spring to fall, it's an ideal choice for trellises, hanging baskets and containers with climbing support. Place in the corner of the landscape or patio for a terrific focal point. This tropical evergreen also makes a fantastic house plant—brightening any room with its blooms. Sun Parasol cultivars are easy to grow and disease resistant. When enjoyed outdoors, this tropical vine attracts butterflies and hummingbirds from miles around. Deer tend to avoid. 2" or 4" pot. Mandevilla x 'Sunparaprero' PP19399
