Dinesh ji could this be Allamanda cathartica, see tubular lower portion, longer than upper swollen portion?

Thanks, Singh ji,
I think the difference given in another post as below by Singh ji may be more appropriate to differentiate them as per POWO (Allamanda schottii Pohl) and POWO (Allamanda cathartica L.):
"A. cathartica, long cylindrical tube and much shorter swollen upper half is distinctive, in A. schotii cylindrical portion is much shorter than moderately swollen upper portion"
This way only posts at Allamanda schottii Pohl (accepted name) may be correct and others may be of Allamanda cathartica L. only.

Thanks Gurcharan ji and Garg ji. I have revised my notes accordingly.

Again, here the posted pictures have plants of bushy and dwarf habit, with almost Nerium-like leaves. It could be that it is Allamanda cathartica var. schottii (Pohl) L.H.Bailey & Raffill ... synonym of Allamanda schottii Pohl

Hopefully someone throws light on whether Allamanda schottii Pohl has variations found in flowers depending on garden hybrids / cultivated varieties.

Regards.
Dinesh
