Mandevilla Plants

Mandevilla ‘Alice Dupont’

Anonymous added on December 11, 2014 | Answered

Is it normal for a Mandevilla to completely turn brown during normal dormant time? I covered it during frost, but it turned all brown and looks dead. It was so pretty all summer, hope it will come back. Thank you.
