Mandevilla laxa
(Syn M. suaveolens)

Mandevilla laxa is a vigorous twining climber with large strongly scented white flowers in summer it will happily survive the winter as a deciduous plant with wall protection (Min -11c). In a conservatory the plant is evergreen and can suffer badly from red spider mite but it does do well in pots. It likes a sunny position and is not fussy as to soil type so long as it has good drainage but does not dry out. Sometimes called the "Chilean Jasmine" an odd name for a plant from Argentina! Introduced to the UK in 1837

As my plant has got older and the wood has thickened up more of the stem framework is now over wintering, and flowering is better and earlier
