10" Mandevilla question

Hello - just received a 10" Mandevilla with a small trellis as a gift. It's my understanding that this plant is a vine plant that needs a trellis type structure to grow. Do I need to build a trellis to match it's 6'-8' growing potential before I plant it? or do I plant it as is?

Hi, Mandevilla is a tropical vine that can ramble up to 10 feet if it's happy. They are sold with small trellises just for support at the retail store. I would grow it on a fence or buy an inexpensive trellis at your local home store that you can use for the season. Keep in mind, the vine won't overwinter in New Jersey so all you need to do is give it something to scramble over for the summer.
