Featured plants for March 2019: Hibiscus, Mandevilla and Thunbergia Sky Vine.

Hibiscus is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae, comprising several hundred species that are native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Hibiscus plants are known for their large, colorful flowers. These blossoms can make a decorative addition to a home or garden, but they also have medicinal uses. Mandevilla is a genus of tropical and subtropical flowering vines belonging to the dogbane family, Apocynaceae. The genus was named after Henry Mandeville (1773-1861), a British diplomat and gardener. Mandevillas develop spectacular, often fragrant flowers in warm climates. The flowers come in a variety of colors, including white, pink, yellow, and red. Many hybrids have been developed also. As climbers, Mandevillas can be trained against a wall or trellis to provide a leafy green and often flowering picture of beauty. Sky vine (Thunbergia grandiflora), also commonly referred to as clock vine, a member of the tropical Acanthaceae family and is an evergreen in frost free climates. The clusters of its trumpet flowers will enrich your garden with the vibrant feel from India, its origin. Dramatic lavender-blue flowers on a backdrop of dark green heart-shaped leaves will light up your garden all summer. This vine is ideal for covering a fence, pergola or a large trellis.
