This hardy, sterile vine was developed at the University of British Columbia. Instead of flowering to produce seed and complete reproduction, it puts its energy into making flowers and lots of them! Mandarin produces blooms of large clusters of yellow-centered bright orange trumpet shaped flowers from late spring through summer. Mandarin is vigorous and can reach a height of 20 feet. It is a multi-stemmed vine that climbs by twining itself around narrow supports like a woven fence, narrow pipe or even small branches. Very tolerant of Wyoming conditions!

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
