Q.One Site Said Mandevillas Need 6 Hours Of Full Sun And You Say Otherwise. Which Is Correct?

Zone 28054 | Anonymous added on July 3, 2022 | Answered

I bought 3 mandevillas and planted them in a flower box – part of my house with very little direct sun. They weren’t flowering so about 3 weeks later I put them in large containers and set them in the sun. Now I don’t know where to put them. Can you help? Thanks.

Mandevillas need full sun to part shade. But in North Carolina, where it is so hot and humid, they appreciate some shade in the afternoon.

I think our article got confused with indoor/outdoor care. To grow it indoors, mandevilla needs bright, indirect light.
