SOLVED: Zone 8b Mystery Trees

Peeples Valley, AZ(Zone 8b)

I have two of these stumps that are growing these suckers at a house I recently bought. I haven't watered them, and they're thriving since spring rains, despite over 100 days of no rain now, daily temps in the 90s.

These pics are a couple months old. They're now about 8ft tall, and have bloomed with some pinkish trumpet shaped flowers about an inch long. I'll post pics of those separately.

This is high desert Arizona, scrub oak/pinon, 4700' . I doubt they're native based on where they're growing.

Here's pics of one of them taken just moments ago, full plant, and blooms up close.

I wonder if that could be a X Chitalpa tashkentensis...
