Please identify this small ornamental shrub with sulfur yellow flowers borne on leaf axils on long drooping branches. Leaves are sessile, thick and leathery with prominent mid rib. Photo was taken in Sri Lanka in March 2013.
Please send a picture showing the flowers clearly  (close up)
I have the same plant ... that I have been seeing in tropical areas and last fall I got a few photos ...I too would love to know what it is...
the flowers remind me of legumes... Attachments (1)
here is another one that shows the fronts of the flowers a little better... 1 image.
Any thing related to Cytisus sp.....?
thank you ...
flowers have resemblance
thanks for pointing us in the right direction
that's a start
I may be wrong, but ... pictures remind me of a plant I had seen in a Bonsai Exhibition in Mumbai.
Blue Braya & Yellow Braya.
Had posted for id.
so do you have the link to your submission? was it diagnosed?
Here are the links to the two posts by me & ....
Your flower looked similar to my yellow flower.

Ornamental For ID : BBC Show,MNP,Mumbai : 150613 : AK-1
Based on ... note above, I searched...but...I have not found upon exhaustive search terms:  BRAYA, bonsai
BBC bonsai exhibition and braya, blue braya yellow etc etc Neither
Blue and yellow forsythia, Blue and yellow pea tree...(FORSYTHIA because of the weeping habit)
I went back to searching my specimen: pea like flowers on a shrub or a tree
found Caragana ...  wiki has a page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caragana#mediaviewer/File:Caragana_distribution.svg
and my choices boil down to Caragana aurantiaca or Caragana pygmaea  
I have not seen any seed pods on the specimen I have seen or photographed in September this year... PLant has that drooping habit that SIVA has shown above.
Many thanks for all your efforts in trying to identify this plant which was introduced to Sri Lanka. Based on the description of leaves and flowers it may probably be Caragana aurantiaca.
