Wild Allamanda ( Yellow Mandevilla, Yellow Dipladenia )

Urechites lutea or Mandevilla boliviensis

Description:

A woody, evergreen shrub with vigorous growth, Allamanda may reach a free-standing height of 2 metres or more. The leathery leaves are lancelike, pointed, and may either be opposite or in whorls of three or four. The yellow, trumpet-shaped flowers are 5-7.5 centimetres in diameter; cultivated forms tend towards larger blooms which may also be white, purple, pink or orange in colour. Their scent may be described as delicate and fruity.

Habitat:

The genus Alamanda is native to South and Central America. I found it in a home garden at Khatima, Uttarakhand, India.

Notes:

Allamanda, also known as Yellow Bell, Golden Trumpet or Buttercup Flower.
