I came across this beautiful yellow flower by the roadside. I tried to search the internet for the name and species of this flowering plant but to avail. Suddenly a thought occurred to me. Perhaps someone in the myLot community could help. I think there’s plenty of nature lovers here. I took this photo a couple of months ago. Does anyone know the name of this flowering plant?

That's what we call Yellow Bells. It looks like a bell. My parents have that flowers in their front yard. Here's the picture.

@magallon Yes, the flowers do look like bells and they are very pretty. I wonder what's the botanical name.

@succeednow "Yellow bell" is a shared common name by (1) Allamanda cathartica (2) Allamanda neriifolia, and (3) Tecoma stans. The one on the picture that I posted is Allamanda Cathartica. There is a violet variety which is called as Allamanda Blanchetii.

The name of the flower is Allamanda, they are native to Americas. In the wild, allamandas grow along riverbanks.

@LadyDuck I've learnt something today. I thought this type of flower only grows in the tropics.

@jstory07 According to @magallon they're called yellow bells. I wonder if they come in other colours like red, pink, purple, white or black!
