A dipladenia twines naturally, but it may need your help to train where you want it to go. It's probably too small a vine to cover a large trellis or arbor but will do well on a smaller trellis, post or fence railing. It even works in a hanging basket or as a small viney shrub. One of the biggest attributes of this beautiful vine is that it will flower in more shaded areas
These tropical vines need the warmth of Zone 10 and an area protected from winter winds. Most prefer full to part sun, though dipladenia can take part shade and will flower nicely there. If growing in a row, place the plants 3 feet apart...dipladenias can go 2 feet apart.
Water on a regular basis but make sure not to overwater. It's very important to let these vines go dry between waterings.
Fertilize twice a year - in spring and fall - with a good quality granular fertilizer. You can also supplement feedings during warm months with bone meal and/or liquid to encourage more flowers.
