Mandevilla Sun Parasol Giant Crimson PP17,736 ['Sunmandecrikin'] - A vigorous vining mandevilla with luxurious dark green foliage that provides a nice foil to the incredibly large (4 to 6 inch wide) warm red flowers with orange throats. Full coastal sun to light shade. Long bloom period from May to October. Water regularly. Plant in a well-drained soil, raised bed or keep in a container. Protect from frost or bring under cover when temperatures dip near freezing - as a test we left a plant out this last winter and it faired quite well though we have had several nights at or slightly below 32 F. This attractive plant originated from a cross made at Higashiomi-shi, Shiga-ken, Japan in June 2001. The female parent was the variety 'Sunmandeho' and the male parent was the breeding line M38-1. It was selected for its upright and vigorous-vining freely-branching growth habit, glossy narrow elliptic leaves, long flowering period and large red-colored flowers with imbricate petals. It was propagated vegetatively and grown in a pot trial from May to October 2004 in Japan and received U.S. Plant Patent 17,136 in May 2007.  The information on this page is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from what we have found on reliable online sources, as well as from observations made of our crops of this plant growing in the nursery and of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Mandevilla Sun Parasol Giant Crimson PP17736[Sunmandecrikin].
