Mandevilla burn by sun
Hi, I bought two Mandevilla plants back in December 2016. I planted them right away and for the first few months they were doing great. In the last month or so the heat in Southern California specially the San Fernando Valley has been pretty bad. On of my beautiful Mandevialla seems to has been burnt badly. The other one is kind of OK. Can the this one be brought back to life? Thank you, Amy

The heat was likely quite intense and stressful for the small plants.
You can try shading the plants, especially during the hottest part of the day.
Make sure the soil is moist; slow and deep watering.
