    Looks like mandevilla to me. Not sure if I spelled it right but I winter them in the house and then put them out all summer.
    I'm a Yankee girl living in Ohio hahaha

    I believe it is called a Mandevillas. I live in South Carolina and they sell them in all the nurseries down here each summer. For us they are more of an annual, as it is a real tropical plant and zone 7 is still too cold for it in the winter.

    I agree Madavilla ,,, very pretty and Hummingbirds love them !!!! I left mine outside last year and they are not coming back this year ,, They do like to hang, and will climb for you !!!! But bring them in when it gets to freezing !!! Alot of Sun and water Regualr ,,, if leaves look like they are burning to much Sun !!!!
