Mandevilla Plants
Q.

regarding a Red Mandevilla

Zone I live north west of Glasgow | Contrary Mary added on June 8, 2015 | Answered

I have my plant in a contaier in the garden facing east and getting the full sun throughout the morning (this year has been dreadful though). This is the 4th year I have had a Mandevilla plant. Each year I have purchased one from a local supplier. This year the flower develops but will not open fully. It remains in an open bud formation. What can I do to encourage the flowers to open fully - could it be a genetic fault with the plant?
