to rajdeep jhala,
7653 is commonly called christ's thorn - the story goes that these were the crown of thorns put on Jesus head at the time of his crcifixion. they then had no flowers - but late the flowers were seen representing the blood that was shed when the thorns pierced the skin !!
7701 looks like golden duranta to me - used a lot for ornamental hedging.

Thanks, Devendra ji.

Some extracts from Wikipedia link (for pictures/ more details, pl. click on the link):

Tecoma capensis (syn. Tecomaria capensis), commonly known as Cape Honeysuckle, is a scrambling shrub which is native to Africa.

It grows to about 2 to 3 metres in height and a similar width. It is normally an evergreen shrub, but may lose its leaves in colder climates. It produces orange to orange-red flowers at different times throughout the year.The species occurs naturally in South Africa, Swaziland and southern Mozambique.

Cape Honeysuckle has been in cultivation for many years and is often used for hedging.
