Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
With Mother’s Day falling in mid-May, the perfect time for spring planting, flowers weigh in at the top of the list for great gifts. This year give mom one of the newest tropical plants she can enjoy for months.
According to Justin Hancock, editor from BHG.com, the Better Homes and Gardens® Web site, tropical plants are hot this year, particularly mandevillas because of their high-impact and low- maintenance.
“Mandevillas are stunning tropical vines with bold, trumpet-shape flowers in dazzling shades of red, pink, fuchsia, or white,” says Hancock. “It's an ideal plant for creating a lush, tropical look. And it's easy to grow, too!”
Mandevillas add high impact color in a container on the patio or at the front door. Plus, the tubular flowers have the extra bonus of attracting hummingbirds.
Since mom deserves the best, there’s only one choice of mandevilla –Sun Parasol®, the first true red mandevilla introduced by Suntory. These “top shelf” plants love summer sunshine and thrive in the heat, but are more cold tolerant than other mandevillas. And Sun Parasol pumps out big flowers all season long. What more could Mom want!
Garden Crimson, the newest red mandevilla in the Sun Parasol Collection, can be planted directly in the flower bed for a beautiful landscape. This low-growing, naturally compact-blooming machine produces large 3-4 inch crimson blooms and doesn’t need trellising, making it ideal for garden beds, window boxes or containers.
Mandevilla is usually grown as an annual, but if Mom has a green thumb, it can be overwintered indoors in a bright spot protected from the cold.
With so many choices of flowers, make it easy this Mother’s Day and give the gift that keeps on giving from spring until fall – a Sun Parasol mandevilla from the experts at Suntory flowers!
