Hi...what you have there is a "dipladenia"...it is a relative to the mandevilla..they grow differently...
yours-dipladenia had small oval shiny leaves...
the mandevilla has larger long oval leaves and they are felt like to the touch....both beautiful plants...
the more you feed them in the growing season, you will have tons of flowers....google them in images and you will see the difference....beautiful plant really like the white....linda

That's a great-looking vine! It used to be called Dipladenia but the name has been changed to Mandevilla. There are, according to Wiki, about 100 species of Mandevilla and the one emerald's talking about sounds awesome too! My Mom has one that makes really big raspberry-pink flowers with fairly large but very smooth leaves.

TG, from all of the plants I remember you showing us, this one will want the most sun and heat of them all.
