Plant description

allamanda blanchetii allamanda.

allamanda blanchetii allamanda

Allamanda blanchetii is a fast growing, evergreen climbing shrub with glossy green foliage. It has large, showy pink flowers in summer and autumn.  It can be trained to cover fences and arbours, and also a standard. It is a good container plant. It is frost tender, so is best in tropical and sub-tropical areas. It can also be grown in warm sheltered spots in temperate climates.

Allamanda likes a fertile soil, and regular watering. Prune in early spring to encourage new flowering growth, and to shape the plant to the desired size. Fertilise in the warmer months.

Allamanda can become invasive in some areas.

The plant exudes a milky sap, which can be a skin irritant.
