Mandevilla ‘Sun Parasol Apricot’
By Dave Harrison
July 2016 – Breakthrough colour ‘Sun Parasol Apricot’ debuted at the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) in January. ‘Apricot’ matches the Sun Parasol Giant mandevilla series with blooms spanning 3.5-4.5″.
Ideal for trellises in larger pots, it is a very fast grower with excellent branching. The trailing habit is also beautiful in hanging baskets. Growers should produce in pots 6″ or larger as a trellised item. It is an excellent addition to tropical programs and the flowering vine category at retail. suntorycollection.com
