Cool banner Baja!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Reminds me of a Black Eyed Susan vine bloom (Thunbergia). Very cool.

In the banner shot, the blooms & even the leaves reminded me of Allamanda
Golden Trumpet (Allamanda cathartica 'Golden Butterfly')

but I knew it wasn't that. Cool plant! Great banner & thanks for sharing the pic of the entire plant.

I agree with everyone......very pretty banner, Baja! Thumbs up

Thanks for the whole image, too.

It looks compact vs a tall one (?)
Can you please show us the side view as well?

Thanks! Smiling

Yes, it is the most compact one, a blob.

Here is a side view from when it was flowering, and today (dead leaves and all).

Amazing plant, Baja! Blinking

Does it have a species or cultivar name?

The contrast between the form & bloom
make it very special. Thumbs up
