Looks like some species of Campsis to me.
I would suggest Tecomaria capensis which comes in a range of many colours.
It doesn’t look like Tecomaria capensis , because in Tecomaria capensis, the stamens and style are exerted but here in the pictures they are inserted http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=242414464.
Further, Campsis are mostly recorded as vines (please refer http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=3864&flora_id=2)
I feel it is something different.
I think … finally got it correct: Incarvillea emodi. If concluded, the thread clearly shows how experts on this group don’t get carried away and won’t stop till a correct identity is achieved.
Yes Incarvillea emodi (Royle ex Lindl.) Chatterjee of Bignoniaceae family.
I.diffusa (=Amphicome arguta) as per another thread. Thanks, …, for pointing out.
