Nature Walk 2 - Bush Allamanda (Allamanda schottii)

As I continued, I spotted this Allamanda, I guess there are many varieties of this kind.
This one is broad leaf type and quite bushy. I guess thats why its known as Bush Allamanda.

When I was child, I was so curious and will experiment on anything concerning plants. I remember tasting the milk from the allamanda flower (wow.. I remember that for life!!!)
It is sharp bitter stinging taste that I cannot rub it off from my tongue.

Later I realised why I keep away from yellow coloured trumpet shaped flowers. (lol)
Finally now, I have made peace with allamanda's and now I have managed to grow an allamanda few months ago. Still waiting for it to bloom.

After reading this post I'm convinced that I have an allamanda surprise at my window. It sneaked through my window overnight and gave me an early morning surprise. It is a sea of green now I'm waiting for those yellow flowers to appear and my camera will be ready.
