plant named ‘MOGI ONE’

A new and distinct Mandevilla cultivar named ‘MOGI ONE’ is disclosed, characterized by short internodes, deep red flowers, glossy foliage, and rapid growth. Flowering begins early. Plants are vigorous and flower abundantly. The new variety is a Mandevilla, typically produced as an indoor ornamental plant.

Latin name of the genus and species: Mandevilla hybrida.

Variety denomination: ‘MOGI ONE’.


The new cultivar is a product of a planned breeding program. The objective of the breeding program was to develop new Mandevilla varieties with vigorous plant habits suitable for commercial production. The new variety originated from a cross pollination of an unnamed proprietary, unpatented seed parent and the pollen parent, a different, unnamed proprietary, unpatented Mandevilla. The crossing was made during March 2013.

The new variety was discovered by the inventor, Marian Osiecki in the Summer of 2014 in a group of seedlings resulting from the crossing. The new cultivar was found in a commercial greenhouse in Altha, Fla.

Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘MOGI ONE’ was first performed at a commercial nursery in Altha, Fla. by terminal vegetative cuttings in August 2014. Subsequent propagation by tissue culture has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.


The cultivar ‘MOGI ONE’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature, day length, and light intensity, without, however, any variance in genotype.

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘MOGI ONE’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘MOGI ONE’ as a new and distinct Mandevilla cultivar:

    • 1. Deep red flowers.
    • 2. Vigorous plants.
    • 3. Rapid growth.
    • 4. Short internodes.
    • 5. Abundant flowering.
    • 6. Early flowering.
    • 7. Suitable for trellis production or hanging baskets.


Plants of the new cultivar ‘MOGI ONE’ are similar to the seed parent in most horticultural characteristics. The new variety, however, differs in the following:

    • 1. The new variety begins flowering earlier than the seed parent.
    • 2. ‘MOGI ONE’ produces flowers that are a different shade of red than the seed parent.
    • 3. ‘MOGI ONE’ glossier foliage than the seed parent.

Plants of the new cultivar ‘MOGI ONE’ are similar to the pollen parent in most horticultural characteristics. Plants of the new variety however differ in the following:

    • 1. ‘MOGI ONE’ produces is more vigorous than the pollen parent.
    • 2. ‘MOGI ONE’ produces red flowers, the pollen parent produces pink flowers.
    • 3. ‘MOGI ONE’ produces more branches than the pollen parent.


‘MOGI ONE’ can be compared to the commercial variety Mandevilla ‘Sunmandecrim’ U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,539 Plants of ‘Sunmandecrim’ are similar to plants of ‘MOGI ONE’ in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of ‘MOGI ONE’ differ in the following:

    • 1. The new variety has flowers of a more true red color, whereas this comparator produces flowers with more burgundy tones.
    • 2. ‘MOGI ONE’ begins flowering earlier than this comparator.
    • 3. ‘MOGI ONE’ produces more flowers than this comparator.

‘MOGI ONE’ can also be compared to the commercial variety Mandevilla ‘Sunmandecrikin’ U.S. Plant Pat. No. 17,736 Plants of ‘Sunmandecrimkin’ are similar to plants of ‘MOGI ONE’ in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of ‘MOGI ONE’ differ in the following:

    • 1. The new variety produces flowers that are smaller in diameter than this comparator.
    • 2. ‘MOGI ONE’ begins flowering earlier than this comparator.
    • 3. ‘MOGI ONE’ produces more flowers than this comparator.


The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color a typical plant of ‘MOGI ONE’ grown in a greenhouse in Altha, Fla. This plant is approximately 14 months old, shown in an 8 inch pot.

FIG. 2 illustrates a close up view of the flower.

The photographs were taken using conventional techniques and although colors may appear different from actual colors due to light reflectance it is as accurate as possible by conventional photographic techniques.
