Once all risk of frost has passed, plant subtropicals, including angel's trumpet, canna, ginger lily (Alpinia), and mandevilla
Climbers like hoya and stephanoides are soaring skywards, as are the lovely Mandevilla

Calycine colleters mostly in alternisepalous groups or in continuous ring, more rarely solitary and episepalous; corolla usually divided into narrow lower tube and expanded upper throat, mostly infundibuliform or tubular campanulate, more rarely tubular or salveriform; corolla-lobe aestivation dextrorse; distinct corona usually absent; stamens mostly inserted at base of throat; lignified guide rails long, well developed; style head with neither basal collar nor upper wreath, with 5 arms, which usually project from lower part (arms forming long ridges for most of length of style head in Mandevilla
and Macrosiphonia) to which anthers are attached; stigmatic zone confined to re gion on underside or lower region of style head.

Other datum, not quite agreeing with a monophyletic evolution for the group, is the upwardly directed sterile placenta margins of Secamone, a character apparently shared with Mandevilla
