Mandeville belongs to the periwinkle family, which can be seen in the structure of the flowers and the glossy deep green foliage. Mandevilla produces flowers from April to autumn, both in nature and in the garden. The mandevilla is named after the English diplomat and botanist Henry Mandeville. After its discovery, mandeville gradually became a must-have in Victorian greenhouses. Mandevilla has since conquered everyone’s heart as a beautiful balcony and patio plant.
