I thought this was a nickernut plant, but the flowers were pink/red. On this site it says the bloom is yellow. any help would be great.

bump (& run)

Probably caesalpinia - just not the one you think. Bird of Paradise maybe? caesalpinia pulcherrima?

I agree, it would help to see flower pictures. There aren't very many Caesalpinia's with pink flowers so I think odds are it's something else in the pea family instead. (definitely not Caesalpinia pulcherrima which is the one I know of that can come with pink flowers--it has much smaller/finer leaves)

Leaves and inflorescence remind me of Glycyrrhiza sp.
