Some plants get all the attention on a patio or in the landscape, and Mandevilla Sun Parasol Giant Red Emperor will stand out even among those. Mandevilla is a tropical climbing plant with giant deep red blooms that you can grow during summer and even as a houseplant in winter. Place it in a focal part of your landscape or in a container near a pole or trellis. Then train the long stems as they fill with glossy green leaves and large (2 to 3 inch) flowers.

Most mandevillas can grow to 10 feet long with little effort other than a place to climb and regular watering. In warm southern zones (10 and 11), plant Mandevilla Giant Red Emperor in full or part sun and it will continue to bloom outdoors with long-lasting red flowers from planting time until first frost. If you grow it in a container, bring it indoors for winter in most zones.

Sun Parasol® Giant Red Emperor Mandevilla Care

Place your Mandevilla in a warm, mostly sunny spot for best results. Give it fairly fertile garden soil or a quality potting mix. Water the plant regularly, not letting it dry out too much in summer. Regular, slow-release fertilizer can help keep it lush all summer. The plant prefers heat and might slow down once outdoor temperatures drop to 45 degrees.

You can bring your Mandevilla Sun Parasol Giant Red Emperor indoors for a winter rest and grow it as a houseplant. Try to expose it to at least indirect sun and water normally until it begins to drop leaves and stop flowering. Then, cut back on watering to give the plant a chance to rest in winter. It might drop some leaves, but this is normal. Keep the plant indoors until temperatures are above 60 degrees consistently and repot it in a slightly larger pot with a quality potting mix.

Sun Parasol® Giant Red Emperor Mandevilla Spacing

If you plant more than one Mandevilla together or as part of a container group, consider the plants’ mature spread of nearly 3 feet. Place plants 1 to 2 feet apart from each center. Try to provide a trellis or other object on which the trailing vine can climb.

    Tiny Plants. Big Price.

    Posted by Tara Stone on Apr 25, 2022

    First time purchase, 4 different plants. Good news & bad news. The good news is that they were well packaged for shipment and appear to be healthy. The bad news is the plants were far smaller than I anticipated and I feel absolutely gouged by the $30 per plant price (4" container, actual plant size is very immature and will take a number of years to make an impact in my garden). The plant size does not justify the $30 price tag ($120 for 4 plants that look like starter plants that might cost around $7-$12 at a local nursery). My mistake for trusting that this small business was selling me a product that would equal the value of the price paid. I probably could have sourced these plants locally and come home with substantially larger plants for half the price. Life is busy and I thought I'd try buying plants online... never again. I make an effort to support small businesses, but I regret my purchase with this small business. I reached out to Plant Addicts to share my regrets and twice I received the exact canned response from two different ladies; I have a feeling they use that canned template often. I do not recommend Plant Addicts. I will never order from them again. Expensive mistake. Lesson learned.

    This plant arrived in great shape. It was larger than most mail order plants. I can’t wait to see the blooms!

    These arrived fairly small and I was a but worried they would do much in our short Minnesota summer. However once the vines started to grow they really made up time and we are enjoying the beautiful red flowers immensely. I am definitely going to bring these in and try to overwinter them for next summer.
