The Dipladenia is native to South and Central America and was named after the British diplomat Henry Mandeville (1773-1861), Mandeville being the botanical name for Dipladenia.
Dipladenia is a climbing shrub with large, bright pink, trumpet shaped flowers. They prefer part shade in a temperate climate, rich, well drained soil and should be watered well during hot weather.
The rose is a highly valued and popular plant because of its beauty and perfume. In the middle ages, plants had to have a practical purpose, such as medicinal use, to justify their cultivation. The rose however, was an exception and was grown purely for its beauty. Roses are vigorous growers so will need pruning in winter after flowering.
Our roses are grown as shrubs and/or standards and are all grown on fortuniana rose stock.
