Little Red Allamanda, Dwarf Purple Allamanda

Allamanda x 'Little Red' (A. violacea x A. cathartica)

Large, 3" wide deep purplish red trumpet shaped flowers are produced throughout the warmer months of the year to potentially year-round under warm tropical conditions. Little Red Allamanda, also offered as Cabernet, Mini Red, and Brazilian Red Wine, is considered to be a hybrid with a more compact well-branched habit and excellent flower power possibly exceeding that of both parents, A. violacea and A. cathartica, providing a seemingly endless display from mid to late spring into late fall. Dark green smooth foliage adorns the upright to arching stems on a plant that grows to about 2-3'H and may get larger with age under good conditions. Provide the Little Red Alllamanda with a full to partly sunny site in an average moist but never soggy wet, well-drained, fertile soil for optimum vigor and continuous flowering. Where not hardy it is easily overwintered in a warm sunny window as a container plant. We trialed this cultivar last summer and fell in love! It should make an excellent container specimen that is sure to add a little tropical flair to any sunny setting. Item# 12976
