I got my red blooming Mandevilla last year. It just started producing buds, but they all appear that they will be white. What has happened? I want red.

This could be a case of a hybrid reverting to one or the other parents! It could revert back, but likely you may find that it remains white.

In order to keep the red color, it may be necessary to find a true red variety with both red parents, such as 'Crimson Red'.
