Such a shame that so many plants in the Botanical Garden of Rio de Janeiro are unlabeled!
Maybe someone recognizes it?

I got a step further I think, it is probably a Clerodendron sp., didn't find one yet with the same leaves..

Lovely shrub Myriam! The form and leaves resemble Rhododendron, tropic rhodos are called Vireya Rhododendron. I found one which has similar flowers, Rhododendron tuba. How similar the flowers are to the Clerodendrum!

Thanks Janet, yes indeed it could be a kind of tropical Rhodo, the leaves would match that genus better, Rhododendron tuba has a similar flower shape, I've checked the Ericaceae fam. in field museum, no match yet, it might eventually come..

Ixora hookeri looks very close Green, but no quite yet, thanks to your link I found a perfect match, a photo taken in the same botanical garden, probably the same shrub! Hilarious!

It gets more confusing. Hilarious! It could be in Rubiaceae ..

Note the brown 'balls' on the ground, there's some like it in Rubiaceae on Kew ..

The photos on the ntbg site I think cinches it as Ixora hookeri. There looks to be two different types of flowers, maybe male and female.

The photo you found Myriam is Ixora hookeri, hover your arrow over it.

Thanks Lin!

And that's what has happened to my over 50 memory.

I had a double tequila with orange & mango juice last night.

I'm trying to think of more excuses, but it's not working!

Forgot to say; the brown 'balls' on the ground are the fruits from the nearby Couroupita guianensis trees Janet! They are very big and heavy, eatable but they really stink enormously! Hilarious! the trees themselves are impressing beautiful though!
