Characteristics and uses:
The Dipladenia is a superb climber that will display pretty flowers from spring right through to the end of summer. It does not need much care and is very resistant to draught.
For the best decorative effect, we recommend that you train your Dipladenia as it growths.
To keep it from one year to the other, pull down the stems to approximately 10 cm in the autumn, and keep your Dipladenia between 12 and 15°C. The following spring, repot in a rich compost.
Beware, the Dipladenia contains an irritable substance if touched, and is toxic by ingestion. Do not plant at children reach.
