Allamanda Cathartica?


By Meanie

Allamanda Cathartica? (Allamanda Cathartica)

The most disappointing thing about the Eden Project was the difficulty in identifying the plants that I'm unfamiliar with - this is one of them. This was in the rainforest sphere.
Feel free to correct me if I've got the title wrong!

Yay!! I got one right!!
Not too hard really, as I've seen it at Oxfords botanic gardens, although nowhere near as huge as this is!!

Also how come they can bring this in to the country as they have now clapped down on bringing into the country evasive plants.

It wouldn't have a hope in hell outdoors 6d! I think that it would struggle to produce flowers even over here without this care....
