Yellow Bell Flower or Allamanda (Kolambi)

These Yellow Bell Flowers, also called Golden Trumpet or Allamanda (Allamanda cathartica) are from my garden. Also known as Kolambi in Malayalam.

It has close resemblance with Gramaphone, an old instrument used to play music. The flower has five petals and blooms throughout the year. Stem grows very lengthy and the leaves are pointed. The plant usually grows up to a height of 1 - 1.5 meters.
