mandevilla in winter

Our son-in-law planted a mandevilla in their flower garden near the house on the west side. We are wondering what to do with it over the winter?

I have overwintered other tropicals in the house (banana, tropical hibiscus, Meyer lemon, Kafir lime, Curry leaf plant), near a sunny window or florescent lights. They don't look so great near the end of the winter, but bounce back well when they return outside after frost. Might be worth a try!

Manedvillas can also be held in a semi-dormant or dormant condition over the winter by keeping them in a frost-free location such as a garage or basement. Water them sparingly to keep them on the dry side; watering only every 3-5 weeks to keep the roots from drying out.
