Grower Information:

The Opal series is a part of the Diamantina™ Collection of genetics bred by mandevilla and dipladenia expert Lannes of France. These sun-loving vining varieties are earlier to bloom, plus they have increased branching and blooming capacity versus current market competitors. The series offers extreme heat, drought and bad weather resistance. Great alone or mixed with other sun-loving varieties in patio or garden containers with a support (like a trellis). The Opal series includes colors not available in any other mandevilla/dipladenia varieties. They are programmable for a wide range of sizes in trellised production to fit any tropical lover’s space!
Beautiful saturated merlot blooms with extremely vigorious vining.
