Colors to come
In 2020 the line is set to expand with orange-coral bicolor choices in both bush (Jade Series) and vining (Opal series), and this deep fuchsia bush type, part of the Tourmaline Series, will complement the pale pink Tourmaline Bush Pink that’s available now.
Both bush and vining types from the Diamantina series bloom earlier than other Mandevilla/Dipladenia varieties and keep going when the mercury climbs — but the real reason why home gardeners go for these plants is the color.
