Guineverepbr, Dipladenia


All of us know the flamboyant flower show of the Dipladenia family.  The question arises do we need another one.  Guineverepbris the answer.  Guineverepbrwith its pink trumpet flowers with yellow centres has a lot going for it over the original pink Dipladenia of the early 80's.  It is from the branch of the Dipladenia sanderi family where My Fair Ladypbr (white), Merlins Magicpbr (rusty red to pink),Scarlet Pimpernelpbr (rich red), Wilma's Choice (pink) are related. 

Plant Useage

These varieties are more compact, have more flowers and flower for longer periods even into the cool of winter.  They are great planted as companions where they compliment each other.

Growing Conditions

Similarly to others in this family Guineverepbr needs well drained garden beds in full sunny areas.  It is very suited to large decorator pots where the lovely pink colours brighten up courtyards and containers placed around gardens.  Used in this way on patios, decks and balconies Guineverepbr will withstand reasonably strong winds.  Use a stake to support the weight of the foliage and flowers.

Plant Care

Dipladenia Guineverepbr is similar to all other Dipladenias available in its needs and cultivation.  A good open soil or potting mix is essential as drainage is critical.  Fertilise with slow release fertiliser in Spring and early Autumn.  Do not allow Guineverepbr to dry out entirely between waterings.  Lightly trim any tendrils as necessary.  Guineverepbr is rewarding, giving great displays of flowers during most months of the year.
