Shade plant ID

This is growing in a shady spot under some cypress trees in my garden. It is spreading, doesn't seem invasive, but I rarely see it flower. It's likely the previous owners planted it. I'm not sure if it's deciduous or not, I'm in California's Central Valley. One plant has reached about 2 ft tall and wide, but it does not have dense foliage.

Thanks in advance!

Tecoma capensis?

It looks like a Cape Honeysuckle.

That's what saltcedar was saying. Cape Honeysuckle is the common name.

Yep, that's what it is, Cape Honeysuckle. It's growing in a lot of shade, no wonder I rarely see it bloom. I may try to dig it up and move it to a sunnier spot.

Thanks all!
