Mandevilla 'White Fantasy'

Don looked at an outstanding new hybrid mandevilla bred in Japan. 'White Fantasy' has gorgeous white flowers with just a touch of pink in the bud.

Plant details

Common name: 'White Fantasy'

Botanic name: Mandevilla 'White Fantasy' (a hybrid of Mandevilla boliviensis)

Description

A moderately vigorous climber to 4m (12'). Flowers are produced prolifically from spring to autumn. The buds have a slight pink tinge, opening to large, white, trumpet-shaped flowers with pink throats.

Uses

pots on patios or in a garden semi-shade to full sun tropical feel gardens

Good points

pretty white flowers long flowering strong bushy growth tolerant to mites

Downside

sulks in winter in cold climates susceptible to root rot in poorly drained soils

Best climate

'White Fantasy' will grow in most areas of Australia. In cool areas such as Melbourne select a warm, sunny spot and protect from frosts.

Care

Mandevillas like a warm position, with protection from very hot sun. The roots are sensitive and resent disturbance, and it's important not to overwater in winter, as they don't like 'wet feet'. Prune in late winter to early spring to promote bushy growth.

Getting started

'White Fantasy' is available at nurseries. Plants in 175mm (7") pots sell for $15 - $18.
