    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 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.

    Mandevilla they come is colors from red to white. Plant will not winter in your area. Keep roots mulched ane vne/stem and flowers love sunshine. You can contact Park Seed Company, Greenwood, S.C. they will be able to help you. They do have a web site.

    That's what it looks like to me, too. We bring all of our tropicals in between Halloween & Thanksgiving and put them out again after Tax Day. Occasionally there will be an early or late frost and we have to change that schedule but it holds most of the time.

    My MIL has had a mandevilla for years and that is exactly how she keeps it alive.

    What a beautiful mandevilla! And, it looks like you have a few lady bugs to protect it. The lady bugs will keep aphids away from it.

    I have one here in Spain and I still have the ticket on it. They call it "Dipladenia Hybrid"
    Also on the ticket it says ideal for full sun or semi shade Resistant from heat, Resistant from rain, compact and habit and fast growing. Easy to maintain, low water consumption.

    The one I have is crimson and is called Crimson King

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for all the info and tips! i will take good care of them for my neighbor until it is safe to plant. my house faces east, so they will get morning sun,inside until then.
    i had the Crimson red one last year..it was a real beauty on my deck..i already have hummers and monarchs coming to my garden in the summer months.

    It is a Mandevilla. We had one exactly like this that we bought from Lowes here in NC last summer, planted it out and was beautiful, but it didn't survive the winter here like the tag said it should and our winters here are mild.

    We just bought another very pretty red one today at the Farmer's market here in NC.

    It's a mandevilla. Prepare to treat it as an annual (a one season wonder) or to bring it in for winter. Cut back to about 2 feet and find a sunny spot for it inside. I have had minimal luck in NJ. It will stay alive (barely) but recover nicely outside in the summer. Mine never looks as good as the first year.

    Its a Mandevilla, a tropical plant.
    Usually used as a container plant.
    Will not stand any cold weather. Kept inside it will develop white flies, so best used outside in the summer.
