Shrub for ID – 251012 – RK: Is this a Convolvulaceae species?? I thought so till i saw the spiny fruit & was quite intrigued!

Pics taken on 14/10/12 in the morning – Lalbagh, Bangalore.

Unlike my earlier upload of another Allamanda this one has whorled and bigger leaves.

Allamanda cathartica

Yes Sir, it is Allamanda cathartica L., the plant secretes white latex

My earlier post was also Allamanda cathartica L., maybe a different cultivar. Checked both the plants today.

I guess it is cultivated.  

This could be Allamanda cathartica Cultivar ‘Stansill’s Double’.

I had seen in Lalbagh, Bangalore.

Agree with …, Allamanda cathartica ‘Stansill’s Double’.

This is a species of Allamanda species (double flowered) , mostly Allamanda cathartica yellow variety.

This should be Allamanda cathartica L. (*For flower morphology doubts check its synonym as Allamanda cathartica  var. williamsii (auct.) L.H.Bailey).

I guess Allamanda cathartica  var. williamsii (auct.) L.H.Bailey). is the correct ID!

trumpet flower for ID  

Dear friends,
Not able to make out this member of Bignoniaceae, the flower measured about 3 cm wide. I am not sure the structures in photos 3 & 4 – whether they are galls. Please help.  

there are a few examples in plant pathology of galls that may develop thorn like/spikes on surface of round galls. one such is on willow leaves and on forsythia twigs and an interesting paper from Noroth carolina college… NC STATE

Interesting upload …, even if they are galls, the consistency in shape and size is astonishing…. fruit is not characteristic of family to which I suppose it belongs..

Really a unique structure..!! Hopefully it gets identified..

It is Allamanda cathartica and the round balls with spikes are the fruits.
I have it in my Nasik home garden.
Fruits are not common, but occasionally you get one.
Had seen some in Lalbagh too.

the fruit matches internet photos of Allamnda cathartica but most flowers show a narrower long tube below the wider tube. different sp or variety?
… did you show us the case? of your plant? thread url if any. thanks

I just found a thread that exactly matches with … flower and fruit picture by our member, …

how could i have forgotten it? anyway we do have several cases—l/a/apocynaceae/allamanda/allamanda-cathartica

These are the real fruits of Allamanda. I have seen such fruits in my house garden. Right now I do not have the photographs.  Most probably the plant in question is a variety of an Allamanda species.

Thank you very much … for the ID. Thanks very much …
This is again a prize find for me. Never seen or expected Allamanda to fruit like this !
