Allamanda Chocolate cream...... the only name I can currently find for this extremely pretty plant.

There is no doubt that it is an Allamandar cultivar, and could be from the cathartica species and is definitely from the family Apocynaceae, but where it was bred, that I don't know.

It is a very lax shrub/climber which at present is being hosted, supported, by an English rose Elizabeth, who has been having a rest from the summer heat and will soon want to open its buds and show off again which won't at all suit the delicate Allamander, or me if it comes to that.

Still looking for a permanent home at Cortijo Azahar
