Origins of the Mandevilla Diamantina Series

Florensis is a leading horticultural breeding company that specializes in developing and producing new varieties of plants. This series is one of their most successful creations, having been developed through years of breeding and selection.

The series is named after the Brazilian state of Diamantina, where the plant was first discovered. Mandevilla is a genus of flowering vines that are native to Central and South America. The Diamantina series is a hybrid of several different Mandevilla species, resulting in a plant that combines the best characteristics of each.

Characteristics of Mandevilla Diamantina Plants

The Mandevilla Diamantina series is known for its large, showy flowers that bloom from late spring until fall, making them an extra favorite when the best season of the year comes along — summer. The flowers are trumpet-shaped and come in a range of colors, including white, pink, red, and burgundy. The foliage is dark green and glossy, providing a beautiful backdrop for the flowers.



The plants are climbers that can reach up to six feet in height. They are well-suited for growing on trellises, arbors, or other structures, but can also be grown as trailing plants in hanging baskets or containers. Now you know why and what makes these the perfect garden choice! The Mandevilla Diamantina series is a relatively low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow.

It thrives in full sun or partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. Regular watering and fertilizing will help the plant to bloom continuously throughout the growing season. Now, time for the visual goodies! You're about to meet some of the varieties found in each of the Mandevilla Diamantina segments.

  2. Water: The plants prefer well-draining soil and should be watered regularly. Be sure not to overwater, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Fertilizer: The plants benefit from regular fertilization during the growing season. Use a balanced fertilizer and follow the instructions on the label.

  4. Pruning: To encourage bushier growth and more blooms, prune the plant in the spring. Remove any dead or damaged growth and trim back the stems by about one-third.

  5. Winter Care: In colder climates, the plants may need to be brought indoors during the winter months. Keep them in a cool, bright location and reduce watering.
