Can you ID these plants??

I'm hoping someone could identify these two plants I found still blooming on Majorca (Mallorca) this month. I'm hoping that one or both of them could survive in my zone 8 microclimate. The pink vine seems to come in various colors and was commonly seen growing on a pergolia. The orange shrub might possibly be wild. Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately neither one is likely to be hardy enough for your climate zone, probably zone 8b at best, and then only hardy at the roots with sufficient mulch. The Tecomaria is easily manageable as a container plant, which could be brought into a cool greenhouse or sunporch for the winter and will continue blooming all winter if it gets enough good winter sun. The Pandorea might be suitable as a container plant as well, but I don't remember if it blooms on new growth or second year growth, but it would love your heat and humidity in summer. It tends to only bloom in early fall into winter in our local San Francisco Bay Area climate, where the summer weather is a bit cool for its preferences.
