I’m pretty sure this yellow beauty is a part of the Gelsemium genus, specifically called Gelsemium Sempervirens (Carolina Jasmine/Jessamine), a vine that occupies three trees in our yard. 😀 It is said that this specific plant contains medicinal qualities, and were traditionally used as nervous system relaxants. It’s also been explored for anticancer activities . . .
