Mandevilla x amabilis 'Tango Twirl' .......Thai Rose

Still flowering in the October Garden at Cortijo Azahar is this stunningly beautiful vine.

Originating from Brasil and in the family Apocynaceae this twining evergreen vine displays spectacular, soft pink flowers, with multiple layers of petals forming full, double blossoms.
 Each flower lasts for several days.
 It is an exceptionally vigorous grower with large glossy green leaves.

Mandevilla is endemic to the tropical woodlands of Central and South America. 
The sap can aggravate the skin upon contact, and ingestion of any part of the plant may cause stomach discomfort.

Mandevilla x amabilis 'Tango Twirl'     A spectacular new tropical vine with delicate pink, fully double flowers are held in upright clusters and enhanced by large, deep green, glossy leaves. Blooms continually appear over long season in summer. 
A fabulous vine for tropical shade arbors, spiraling up posts and weaving into treillage. 
Ideal for containers as well.
 Place containers against a vertical surface to grow up, or on an elevated surface where it is free to drape or hang in flower covered tresses.
