Flowers looks like TECOMELLA  


Can this be

1.Orange Batface Cuphea, Christmas Cigar Flower, Salvadoran Cigar Plant
2.Cape huneysuckle


Very strange but it doesnt match with any of the above!!!


Tecoma capensis   


Could be Tecomella undullata of Bignoniaceae family

Please refer the link http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=60137&flora_id=5


I think the id by … is correct. Thank you …

Here the leaves are compound and the same for Tecomella is simple.
Hence it cant be Tecomella undulata.


Thank you … and … for confirming the Id
