How to Care for an Allamanda Flower Vine

Answer

The common allamanda, or Allamanda cathartica, is a flowering vine that lives for many years and is known for its leathery, dark green leaves and yellow blooms shaped like trumpets. It is also known by the name golden trumpet vine. It is often cultivated within the United States Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 to 11, where it is utilised as a landscape decorative or as a plant that is kept in a container. According to the North Carolina State University Cooperative Extension Service, once established in a spot that is appropriately sunny and protected, common allamanda requires minimal attention from a human hand. However, it would be in its best interest to have periodic trimming and feeding in order to keep its luxuriant look and keep its occasionally unruly growth under control.
