Caesalpinia gilliesii
It's very showy, exceedingly drought-tolerant, exceptionally hardy--and the hummingbirds LOVE it!

Cassia didymobotrya
Produces beautiful yellow blooms almost all year. Fast grower. Best of all, plant it and you will soon have large, sulphur butterflies drifting around your yard! (It's their host plant.) Although considered "tropical" it survives our Alpine winters.
