It's so hard to tell without a close up of flower and leaf but from the distance it reminds me of Tabebuia, there are both pink and yellow flowering types:

It is something very sweet like Honeysuckle or Tacoma and ants love it, so do birds and bees. The flower is trumpet shaped. Lin I have cropped it maybe now you can enlarge it and see the flowers and leaves. The first was un cropped and it can only be enlarged so much.

Live and learn. Live and learn. Janet does this Tacoma yellow colour flower come in vine shape also? I like both this and the vine but the orange Tacoma Grumbling is highly invasive here. I am talking about the vine because I think I have seen it as a small tree also. I am not growing it because it seems to have some sort of symbiotic relationship with the big black ants and I do not want a colony in my garden.
I tip my hat to you. Thank you.
Regards,
Arif.

I don't know why I didn't think of Tecoma stans, which I have as a small shrub with a trellis in the container for a bit of support ... eventually I will plant it in the ground.


We have the Tecoma capensis that is highly invasive in our area:

It seems there is a yellow flowered form of Tecoma capensis ..

Other than that I can't say if there's another. I found Tecoma stans v. angustata which has different foliage ..

Tecoma stans v. angustata does grow here but not this far North. I don't think it can withstand the cold. That orange Tacoma vine is an absolute nuisance. Must be giving of suckers and spreads like wildfire suffocating everything else in its wake. In winter it dies down, the roots remain alive but I never seen anything happen to Tacoma stans down to -5c.

Arif.
