Trumpet Vine

I had been looking for quite awhile for a yellow trumpet vine. The red/orange ones are easy to find. A few years ago I found one (end of the season-on sale, to boot) and planted it by an arch we have that goes over a bench. This spring after years of waiting for it to bloom, part of the arch broke and started to buckle, but my trumpet vine finally triumphed! I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the first flowers a week or so ago. Now we just have to transfer it all to the new, much stronger arch.
For more information on trumpet vines and why mine may have not flowered sooner:

Update on the Homemade Fabric Releaser - Other postings I found did not include the unscented alcohol, just fabric softner and be sure to use distilled water.
