    1. Blooms for 3 weeks in May.

    2. Trumpet-shaped flowers.

    3. Flowers white at first but turn yellow-orange later.

    4. Vine grows rapidly, but is very thin like a morning glory.

    5. Vine is fuzzy.

    6. Most leaves are oval, but a few near the base are oak-shaped.

    7. Does well in USDA zone 6, in a humid area.

    8. Prefers the shade.

    Can anyone give specific or varietal identification?

    Are you sure of this? Only three weeks in may?

    Lonicera japonica that Caballoviejo gave fits the bill all except this one thing. There is another thread with photos going on just underneath this one. Maybe you can make a photo ID.
