[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Allamanda(Allamanda blanchetii.)is in the Apocynaceae family which includes Plumeria, Carissa, Ochrosia, Adenium, Mandevilla, Nerium oleander, Thevetia and others. All plants with milky sap like these (also typical of the Euphorbia family) are potentially toxic - though a few, like Carissa, are not. You can identify this family easily by the trumpet-shaped flowers that have radially symmetrical lobes that are usually twisted like little propeller blades as well as the milky sap. Allamandas have smooth margined leaves in opposite pairs or whorls.
