Breaking out from the standard red, white and pink varieties, Suntory Flowers introduced a new color and form in mandevilla with Sun Parasol Apricot.

While the flowers are 3.4-4.5 inches large, like Sun Parasol Giant types, the growth habit is significantly different. Instead of being a natural climber, the growth is more pendulous or hanging. Vines get loaded with large buds and blooms.

The plant can still be trained to a trellis or cut back to produce a full bushy plant. But the natural habit is ideal for hanging baskets. Compared to other mandevillas, growth is fast and vigorous with excellent branching to produce a high flower count.
