    My DIL posted this on FB & asked me what it is.  I know I’ve seen it but can’t think of the name.  Do you know?

    Gayle, someone put seeds of this on the seed train. Ive got 2 of the plants myself. But I didn’t mark what they are when I started them. I will have to move my plants, I didn’t realize they got that big.

    She called it a bush, but she’s not really a Gardener so not sure if it’s a bush or just a big plant.

    Look up yellow elder.  It is a shrub.  I just googled yellow trumpet shaped flowers and looked for it that way.

    Not sure if it makes bunches of blooms like that, but it looks like an Allamanda blooms to me.

    Kay-They call the yellow elder allamanda on steroids!  The leaves of allamanda look different than Gayles pic, but the flowers do look similar.

    Yellow Elder it is.  I found it.  She saw it on a recent trip to Texas.  Won’t survive here & much too big for her yard anyway.    And one site did say it looks like Allamanda on steroids.  LOL

    TY, everybody.

    Tina, this is probably different than what you got off the seed train.  I don’t think any of the people on the seed train grow this.

    Hi Gayle…

    I just happened on this site and your question, so I tho’t I’d register, log on, and offer a possible answer.  Your picture looks to me to be a trumpet vine.  I have a large one, same color, I planted 5 years ago at the corner of my patio gazebo frame.  The bees it attracts makes the patio sound like a hive!  As the blossoms dry and fall, the mess they make is ongoing and requires constant sweeping up.  It’s really beautiful but the mess does make me frown.  I’m pleased for the attraction of bees, tho.  My neighbor has one with deep rust blooms.

    Thanks for the welcome, Gayle!

    Even tho the blooms on my trumpet vine should be attracting hummers, I think the bees run them off!! so I put feeders close by so the little guys don’t feel bad. :)
