I was given this bush several years ago. It has grown into a small tree and has bloomed for the past two years in the fall. Can anyone give me the name of it. Thanks. PS hope to picture shows up

It's Christmas Cassia (cassia bicapsularis) if it has multiple trunks. Here is a link to a discussion a few days ago:

Your plant looks like senna bicapsularis (previously called cassia bicapsularis). It's a fall/winter bloomer that is a host for the sulphur butterfly. - June

imagardener2 and juneroses Thanks for the fast response. I have wondered what this bush was for several years. Now that it has started blooming it is really an attention getter. Mine is more like a bush with multiple branches but is now probably 12 foot tall and covered with blooms. I don't see that many sulfer butterflys on it but there is an Iguana living in mine. Go figure. Only in South Florida.
