Allamanda likes hot weather and now that your temperatures are cooling off, the plant is showing some stress. You can prune your plants back to encourage healthy new growth. You won't see much new growth until the weather warms up and you won't see any new flowers until then, either, but pruning back now will help them perform better when the weather warms up again. When you see new growth, feed with a bloom booster type fertilizer. Enjoy your garden!
