Re: Visit to Plant Delights NOW Thunbergia grandiflora

On a whim I looked for your Thunbergia grandiflora in Phillips & Rix Indoor
and Greenhouse plants.  For a Zone 10 plant it's surprisingly tough (but not
tough enough for your winters) Of the 8 Thunbergias they cover this one will
take the coldest temps, down to minus 5 degrees Celsius.
RHS considers it a twining shrub, don't know why not a twining vine.  But
another Zone 10 shrub is Persian Shield which propagates exceptionally well
from cuttings.

Sorry I'm not of much help on this.  But as to your Mandevilla, maybe you
could prune enough of it to take it in the house and then come spring cut it
back further to stimulate new growth at the proper time.
