Mandevilla splendens

This pot was supposed to contain Stephanotis floribunda, hence the label, but this pink flowered vine turned up here instead. It's not Stephanotis but Mandevilla splendens. You can find a larger Mandevilla splendens vine at the base of the wooden deck in the center of the gardens. Maybe the Stephanotis will appear later.

Stephanotis and Mandevilla don't look much alike, but they're both in the dogbane family of plants (Apocynaceae).
