12" Hanging Basket
The Dipladenia Red Hanging Basket has red flowers with a yellow throat that bloom profusely on a sturdy twining or bush-like vine. Its glossy green foliage is a great contrast to the flowers. Similar to Mandevilla, this plant is spectacular for small trellises, containers, hanging baskets (as seen here), or as a houseplant. This plant will also attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Dipladenia Red Hanging Basket plants need a warm climate to achieve optimal performance. Additionally, as a reference, the temperature at night should stay around 65 to 70°F. These plants will do best with partial to full sun (indirect preferably). This bush should be watered 2 to 3 times a week until it is established.
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
