Welcome! They can be vines or shrubs, there's more than one species of Allamanda. I've grown the shrubby type here outdoors in summer but it is not cold tolerant.

Could you provide photos of your allamanda? Also, give us a hint of the location where your plant is growing - city/state/country.

Look in the NGA database at each of the allamanda entries to see which one looks most like yours.

I LOVE the allemandas, but seem to have difficulty in keeping one alive, even with a greenhouse.

I have no idea what I am doing wrong.
