Mandevilla, Dipladenia

This is woody vine that has flowers of bright color. I hear that it won't have flowers on long vine. I've trimmed vines that grew too long, and it has flowers continuously.
It originally came from South America. It might not be a cold-proof plant, but some tropical plants can survive winter in my town. I hope I can see flowers next year again.
