Tourmaline Pink Bush Mandevilla

The Tourmaline Series is a part of the Diamantina™ Collection of genetics bred by mandevilla and dipladenia expert Lannes of France. Similar to a traditional vining mandevilla, this series has larger foliage and big beautiful blooms. What makes it so unique is the non-vining habit! This opens up the option to grow in gardens, smaller containers, patio pots and mixed combinations, where support like a trellis is not needed. A great new option for mandevilla programs!
Blooms are a lovely light pink!

  • Product Story
    • The Diamantina™ Collection of mandevilla/dipladenia, bred by DHMI of France, encompasses world-class genetics for their vining and bush varieties. Mandevilla sanderi was discovered in 1840 north of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Diamantina region of Brazil is historically known for diamond mining. Now in the mandevilla/fipladenia world, Diamantina represents a product line as exquisite and elegant as fine jewels. Every series in the collection is a heavy bloomer that begins earlier than most and thrives through the hot Summer months. In addition, each has its own special and unique qualities. Offer your customers something exceptional: offer them Diamantina, the Jewels of Summer.
