The Allamanda (cathartica) is a vine which can be maintained as a shrub by pruning. The flowers resemble
large golden trumpets which are produced most of the
year.

The Allamanda is highly suceptible to nematodes which
can retard its growth. Mulch them well. A soil
with plenty of organic matter helps in controlling
nematodes.

I suggest you prune your allamandas rather severely
in middle to late February. Fertilize them after
pruning. Allamandas prefer full sun, but they will do
very well in light shade.
