Mandevilla boliviensis is a species of flowering plant in the dogbane family Apocynaceae, native to a region ranging from Costa Rica south to Bolivia and Brazil.[2][3] Common names include white mandevilla and white dipladenia.[4]

A twining woody climber (vine) with glossy oval evergreen perennial leaves, in its natural surroundings Mandevilla boliviensis can grow to 4 m (13 ft) tall, and in more northern places it reaches a height of about 2 m (6.6 ft) and may become deciduous. It has big white flowers with a yellow center which grow in clusters. It flowers from spring until the autumn.[3]

It does not tolerate freezing temperatures, though in summer it can be placed outside. It requires a sheltered spot in full sunlight. In cultivation in the United Kingdom, it has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.[5][6] Hybrid ornamental cultivars have been developed, e.g. ‘Cosmos White’.\
