Do you guys know if any of them make good bonsai? This has relatively small leaves its pretty tough and the flowers are amazing!

Wisteria can make very eye-catching bonsai when they are in bloom. They need to be medium-to-large, because of the length of the racemes. But a well-styled wisteria, in full flower, can be a show-stopper.

Your plant doesn't look like wisteria to me, but it might still make a good bonsai. Frankly, we need a clearer picture of the foliage. Then you might still need another Floridian to identify it, if it's a native.

Many/most legumes have compound leaves. Those small leaves you see may be leaflets.

Some -- Mimosa, Acacia, Tx ebony, Brazilian raintree, etc. -- make nice bonsai, but all of them are a bit difficult because of the leaves.
