ALLAMANDA

These handsome plants from tropical South and Central America tolerate very little frost and require considerable heat for proper growth and bloom; warm nights as well as warm days seem necessary. Trumpet-shaped flowers (borne nearly year-round) and foliage are both imposing. Permanent outdoor plants only in the mildest climates. Elsewhere, grow as summer-blooming potted plants; keep indoors during cold weather.

Allamanda blanchetii

Shrubby grower to 6–10 ft. tall and wide, often with a few vining stems. Leaves are somewhat downy. Rose-purple flowers are 3 1/2 in. across. ‘Cherries Jubilee’ (A. ‘Cherries Jubilee’) has brilliant burgundy red blooms.
