Today’s Flowers-Allamanda Blanchetii

These white and purple in the center flowers are Allamanda (Allamanda blanchetii) is generally described as a Perennial Shrub or Vine. The yellow Allamanda plant called Allamanda oenothetafolia  is more popular which we always can see planted in private gardens or parks in Singapore.
Allamanda plant or golden trumpet it's scientific name is Allamanda cathartica L. They are easy to grow in any sunny places but not suitable to keep as house plants. All parts of the plant are toxic, and the milky sap can irritate the skin. So, if you see Allamanda flowers, don’t touch.
Many thanks to the TF folks: Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Valkyrien for hosting this weekly and lovely event!
