Notes:

Baby sitting this flowering plant for a friend in my greenhouse over the winter. Plant flowers all summer with red trumpet like flowers, seems like a cross between a shrub and a vine as it is growing feelers now. Constantly looses leaves which turn yellow and fall off. It was more bushy in the fall and I’m hoping to learn how to prune it to make it more bushy again for the summer when it goes back outside

    Without its flowers, I’m guessing this might be a red flower form in either Mandevilla or Dipladenia group. Sorry, I don’t know which species or cultivars this is. According to sources Dipladenia’s leaves are smaller and it has more shrub-like growth. Both have the same growth requirements.
