Can I Grow a Allamanda-nerifolia Plant?

I saw a bush at one of the gardens when I was in Brazil called a Allamanda nerifolia. Can I grow it here in the States??

Hi Marc,

Allamanda nerifolia or as it is also called Allamanda cathartic or Golden Trumpet Bush  is hardy to zones 10–11 and tolerant of dry spells. It grows best in rich, well-drained soil and needs regular pruning or it becomes thin and spindly. If you grow it in a container be sure to move it inside before the temperature goes below freezing. This is a very poisonous shrub so keep it away from small children and pets.
