Sundevilla

Sundevilla

Generality

Sundevilla represents a typically climbing plant and is characterized by being extremely decorative: in most cases, in fact, this plant is grown precisely with ornamental purposes.

In particular, this climber can be easily found near coastal areas and, more generally, within all those places that are characterized by a typically mild climate.

One of the main characteristics of this climber is, however, that of having a tropical origin, in addition to the fact that it develops with considerable ease and speed.

It is a plant that, if it is not subjected to constant pruning, can reach even more than four meters in height, while it has leaves characterized by a typical intense green color.

The production of the flowers takes place during the spring season, with the birth of small flowers, with a traditional trumpet shape and a color that is between pink and red.

Unlike Dipladenia Mandevilla, this climbing plant is characterized by producing flowers that are much less showy and by having leaves that are noticeably less wrinkled.


Exposure

It is a climbing plant that must be placed in a strongly illuminated area, perhaps with diffused light, without being exposed directly to the sun's rays.

It is essential to ensure a good level of shading during the hottest hours of the summer season.

However, it also adapts to those completely shaded areas, since it still manages to develop the production of flowers, unlike many other climbers which, when placed entirely in the shade, are unable to bloom.


Watering

Sundevilla must be watered consistently and regularly.

In particular, watering must be carried out every twenty days, in order to always satisfy the water requirements of the plant.

Furthermore, Sundevilla is characterized by having the need to be grown in an environment that is extremely humid.

Furthermore, it is always necessary to apply frequent nebulisations, always bearing in mind the importance of having a certain consistency in carrying out this operation, but avoiding using cold water.


Soil and pruning

This plant especially loves those soft, well-drained substrates with an excellent level of drainage. Equally important to ensure that new shoots are produced is the pruning operation, which allows for more abundant flowering.

This operation must be carried out on the Sundevilla plant, always following the period in which it blooms, by cutting the branches cleanly.


Multiplication

This climbing plant is characterized by having the same characteristics as other similar species, such as Dipladenia Mandevilla: in a nutshell, multiplication can take place both by seed and by cuttings.

Sowing is an operation that must necessarily be carried out during the spring season and is carried out after having prepared a particularly soft soil, in which equal quantities of sand and peat will be inserted.

The germination of the seeds occurs in most cases, especially when it is ensured that the seedbed is placed in a particularly hot environment, in which the temperatures must not drop below twenty-two degrees centigrade.

The plants that will be born will produce flowers during the third year.

The multiplication carried out by cuttings, on the other hand, must always be performed in the initial phase of the spring season: it is essential to cut some twigs that are located in the lateral part of the plant, using shears (making sure that they are always sharp and disinfected previously).

Cuttings with a length of at least ten centimeters must be extracted.

The next phase will be that of rooting: the cuttings must be placed inside a special container, previously filled with peat and sand (in equal quantities) and a minimum temperature of twenty degrees centigrade must be kept.

Once the rooting has occurred, it will be essential to provide for the topping of the most important bud, with an essentially stimulating purpose for the development of the branches that are in a lateral position.


Sundevilla: Parasites

Sundevilla, just like the Dipladenia species, manages to develop with excellent results when it is treated in the best way, especially by applying treatments that allow you to keep fungi and parasites as far away as possible.

Most of these plants are affected by parasites that attack above all the apexes and the younger branches: the main consequence is represented by the yellowing of the leaves and their subsequent fall.

The parasites that can cause the greatest number of damage to this climber are, therefore, the cochineal and the red spider and, in both cases, the object of their attacks is represented by the leaves, especially on the lower page.


There sundevilla, also known as "sundaville“, Is a fast growing climbing plant native to tropical countries.

It shows up with branches long and thickly intertwined that can reach 4 m in length. From these develop the leaves, dense and leathery, bright green in color with a smooth surface. THE flowers they are made up of five red or pink petals and have the classic trumpet shape. These inflorescences bloom copiously from spring to autumn.

Sundevilla is cultivated because of its decorative characteristics and used for ornamental purposes, especially in coastal areas. This plant should not be confused with dipladenia mandevilla, with similar characteristics but with more wrinkled leaves and more showy flowers.

Cultivation

Multiplication

The sundevilla propagates by sowing and by cutting. There sowing it is done in spring by placing the seeds in a soil composed of sand and peat. The seedbed must be placed at a temperature not lower than 22 ° C. Multiplication by cutting it is performed at the beginning of spring by cutting apical portions of the lateral branches about 10 cm.

These cuttings must be inserted in a mixture of sand and peat and kept at a temperature of 20 ° C. Once the rooting has taken place it is advisable to trim the main shoot in order to favor the production of lateral branches.

Exposure

This plant prefers environments with a lot of lightas long as they are not exposed to direct sun. He does not like ventilated environments and those too much buckets.

Ground

It grows well in light soils mixed with sand and peat, as long as they are well drained even better if rich in organic substance.

Irrigation

The sundevilla needs constant watering to be carried out every other day. Being a plant that appreciates humid environments, it is advisable to spray the leaves with water at room temperature once a week. Beware of excessive watering as this plant fears water stagnation.

Fertilization

It is recommended to administer specific fertilizer for flowering plants every 20 days in the period from early spring to the end of flowering.

Pruning

In order to encourage the emission of new shoots and ensure a new abundant flowering, it is necessary to prune the branches of the new year about 5 cm from the ground. If, on the other hand, you want a perennial plant attached to trellises and walls, the topping of the tips is sufficient.

Parasitic diseases

The sundevilla can't stand i root rot which manifests itself with the yellowing and fall of the leaves for this reason it is good to ensure a well-drained soil and avoid excessive watering.
It fears attack by some parasites such as the cochineal is red spider.


Characteristics of the Dipladenia - Mandevilla splendens

It is a houseplant grown in pots and in mild climate areas even outdoors on terraces and in garden. It is an exotic climbing plant from the family of Apocynaceae.

There Dipladenia it is an evergreen climbing plant rich in oval, opposite, shiny leaves with entire margins, of a dark green color.

THE flowers fragrant and gathered in apical or axillary spikes, they have the shape of a trumpet and bloom on the slender stems in different shades of color ranging from narcissus white to bright red with a yellow throat.

Flowering Dipladenia Mandevilla

Flowering begins in summer and lasts until late autumn if the climate is mild.


GROWING MANDEVILLA: A CLIMBING FOR THE TERRACE

There Mandevilla loves bright environments, but sheltered from the intense light of the sun, perhaps by a wall or a light curtain. It grows very fast and can fill a bare wall with green in a few months. As soon as planted it is necessary to add a brace so that it can take shape.

There Mandevilla it should preferably be planted in April and requires a fertile and well-drained soil, sometimes even with a clay base, to avoid water stagnation. On the occasion of repotting, a slow release fertilizer was used.

During the flowering period, the soil must be enriched with a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants, to be added to the water for irrigation.

There Mandevilla it should be watered with a certain continuity, but not excessively: it is good to wait until the soil at the base is dry to add new water.

There Mandevilla it can resist well to various types of diseases and fungi, but can be attacked by Mites, Aphids and Cochineals in the case of hot and dry climates. In these cases, it is advisable to move the plant to shady places, before treating it with specific products.
