Yours is doing better than mine. Mine hasn't flowered since Christmas time, but it has buds on it now. It's grown a lot. Perhaps it was because I repotted it, or perhaps because the conservatory is too cold during the night....oh well, at least it has buds on now!

Karen it has flowered non stop for over three years, keep trying to take cuttings but not had any luck, they are fairly hardy but would not survive outside, and you should cut them down in the winter.

Oh, right, thanks for that. Did you ever cut yours down then Dd? lol :)

Thanks Amy, Karen not as much as we should, that is why it never stops flowering. We had a very pretty pale pink one but that just upped and died.

Gorgeous photo Dd, is it a Mandevilla? Friends used to have one very similar growing up the porch of their casa, it is stunning!

Beautiful. Hate to show my ignorance, but I'd love to know what it is!

Janey it is a Mandevilla, we bought it in France over 3 years ago and it has always had a flower on.

Your plant loves this spot. This plant loves a lot of light and warmth. My plant in my back yard is still blooming also...it blooms all year here.

You certainly have an eye for the exotic, DottyD. I'm looking forward to being taken to a Spring Plant Fair in May (Helmingham Hall gardens, 29th, for anyone in or near Suffolk), so will scour the stalls. :)

Sheila that sounds like fun, Delonix it never fails to deliver.

This ever-blooming Mandevilla is the reason why it's so popular and so widely grown.
