Allamanda Cathartica or Golden Trumpet is an evergreen shrub which  belongs to the apocynaceae family.

This plant is native to Brazil,  and other parts of South and Central America.

Its large and bright annual flowers makes of this shrub a popular plant for tropical style gardens.

Its flowers will appear during all the summer and part of the autumn.

It can be grown as a shrub of about 90cms or a climber plant of more that 2 m.

Flowers will appear in yellow, cream or bicolour, it will depends on the variety.

When growed as a vine plant, provide it strong trellis supports, and trim back the new branches of the bottom to promote new leaves and make it a bushier plant, as it is prone to be leaveless at the bottom of the plant.

It is easy to cultivate, needs a sunny location and rich soils,  neither alkaline nor saline, and with good drainage.

To keep the plant with an equilibrated shape trim it  at the beginning of spring, cutting it back to the height that we required, mainly if we want to keep it as a shrub.

For a more abundant flowering we have to prune the branches of the previous year as its flowers will appear on the tips of new shoots.

Feed it with fertizer for flowers plants or climber plants.

It can be attacked by aphids like mealy bugs or spider mites. Get rid of them by spraying with a specif insecticide.

With regards to deseases, Allamanda,  normally is free of them, although it suffers with the lack of water that will drive to dry leaves and the droppings of shoots.

Allamanda is not tolerant to cold climates, so it is better to move it indoors during the winter and reduce irrigation.
