Have you seen Allamanda flowers before? I bet most people have seen them on Singapore pathways and road kerbs. They are green shrubs with attractive bright yellow flowers. Students may be able to identify them as they are introduced as poisonous plants in the science textbooks. The sap of the plant is poisonous and it is best to avoid physical contact with it.

Besides that, Allamanda makes a great choice for any flowering garden! Recently I made a trip to some local nurseries and I stumbled upon some nice looking Allamanda plants. They are not the usual species that are all around us, but they are another species with bigger flowers and come in other colours!

There are flowers which are almost white in colour and some in pink to deep red! Allamanda is an easy to grow plants for a community garden. It prefers to grow in direct sunlight and therefore, may not be suitable for apartment growers. They are best grown in the ground instead of pots as they will outgrown their pots in a very short time! Do check out these beautiful plants in nurseries in Singapore!
