This evergreen shrub, tending towards scandent habit, has confused me enough. The yellow flowers about 4.5 cm long, remind of Apocynaceae, more so of Allamanda with opposite leaves, but four stigmas at the top of single style are confusing.

My first thought was Dendromecon rigida...but on closer inspection I think maybe not

Thanks a lot TomH3787
Indeed Gelsemium sempervirens

Thanks themoonhowl for suggestion: Dendromecon has 4 free petals, only 2 sepals, numerous stamens and 2 stigmas.
