    sorry, nothing that I'm familiar with. How big are these flowers?

    I don't know what this is, but it's beautiful @Jayashree! Maybe @Douglas Hunt will know?

    I believe @Marian D may have nailed this one.

  • From the pic, the leaves and flowers are similar to a Mandevilla but Mandevilla's leaves are more elongated and shinier. A Mandevilla has a tubular flower like a trumpet and this one, at least from the pic, does not look tubular. This one is not easy to identify.

      @The Garden Frog with C Renee I thought the same thing . Leaves looks similar to the mandevilla leaf but the flower is different.

    Mandevilla here,looks very different. The flowers are much bigger and they are very costly. This one was cheap and the flower is small. This is a close up. Thankyou for all the replies.

      @Jayashree Rajan Hi, I think it's mandevilla - we have a viney type and also one that does not climb...ours is only expensive if it's a very large plant. Different plants have different size flowers - some years the nurseries have several varieties.

    I have one. It's a Rio Red Mandevilla. This variety is more bushy than a climber.

      @Linda I agree with you. I have one of those too. Jayashree, this probably will not vine like others.
