Mandevilla 'Alice du Pont'

Mandevilla Alice Dupont is tender. It likes its roots cool and the top warm.  A greenhouse would be great but there are plenty of places that can keep this beauty out of doors, just not my house during the winter.  The blooms are 2" or more across and hot pink.  Near the coast the upper part of the plant will take full sun, inland a little shade is required. Regardless I plant the rootball where the ground is shaded. Much of a frost and this beaut is a gonner.
