The Q&A Archives: Care of Allamanda Bushes

Question: How do I care for my allamanda bushes?

Answer: The Allamanda (cathartica) is a vine which can be maintained as a shrub by pruning. The flowers resemble<br>large golden trumpets which are produced most of the <br>year.<br><br>The Allamanda is highly suceptible to nematodes which<br>can retard its growth. Mulch them well. A soil<br>with plenty of organic matter helps in controlling <br>nematodes.<br><br>I suggest you prune your allamandas rather severely<br>in middle to late February. Fertilize them after <br>pruning. Allamandas prefer full sun, but they will do<br>very well in light shade. <br><br><br><br>
