DOES ANYONE RECOGNISE THIS PLANT?

I presume it is a legume as it has seed pods like a bean. There are two types of leaf and a flower head with long tendrils.DSC_3803.jpg

    It's certainly a member of the leguminosae, but since that is the 3rd largest family of flowering plants, I guess that doesn't help much .

    It looks a little like Sophora microphylla but fairly sure it isn't.

    Hi,

    your rather flamboyant flowering tree is Caesalpinia gilliesii - the Yellow Bird of Paradise tree which I believe is native to Argentina but is widely grown in warmer mediterranean climates.
