« on: November 13, 2013, 10:29:42 AM »
Common name: Bush Allamanda
Botanical name: Allamanda neriifolia   
Family: Apocynaceae (Oleander family)
Bangla Name:ঘন্টা ফুল 

Native to Brazil, Bush Allamanda is an evergreen tropical shrub. It typically grows to 4-5 ft tall. It bears clusters of yellow, trumpet- shaped flowers with orange-red throat stripes. Flowers are bell-shaped with a golden yellow corolla, striped orange at the throat, up to 6 cm across, with a short and swollen tube, angular at the base. Leaves are leathery, elliptic to obovate, dull green, 2-4 inches long, and appear in whorls of 3-5 along the stems. It is closely related to Golden Trumpet Vine, but has a bush like habit. As with most oleander family members, the stems exude a toxic milky sap. Genus name honors Frederich Allamand, an 18th century Swiss botanist. Fruit is a globose and prickly capsule.

In our childhood we called it 'Togor'.
