Yes, it looks very similar. This one is native to tropical India, Southeast Asia and Thailand. Its other common name is Indian Laburnum.

It's drought tolerant; however, needs some water in summer to look good. It's native to strong monsoonal climates where there's a lot of rain in summer.

These trees were really small back in 2012. I'm not sure which year they first started flowering.

Here's a pic of this tree when it was a baby back in Sept of 2012.
