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.
