    Hi Jamis,

    The picture is small but it looks like it could be a variety of Allamanda.* Here's the vining type.

    Allamanda schottii aka shrub allamanda.

    Many types here.* Do the flowers look like any of these?

    Ah, much better.* I think it's a blue palo verde aka Cercidium floridum.

    You are so very welcome!* There are some selected cultivars of these trees if you want to plant one.* Google with the scientific name.
