Could you please help me identify this plant? I firstly thought this is kind of philodendron, but I cannot find the same plant when I try to search on the web.

Maybe Fatsia japonica?

Thank you for answering my question. I asked my mom who gave me this tree and she asked the plant shop where she bought this tree. The answer from the shop was 'Illawarra Flame Tree'. Hurray! Thank You!

The leaves do resemble Fatsia (Fatsia japonica) which is a nice plant but oh my goodness Flame Tree (Brachychiton acerifolius) is so beautiful! Lovey dubby

Very beautiful! Did a google image search for the name Illawarra Flame Tree. I love it's beautiful, red fall color!
I may have to get one, since they are perfect for my zone!

This is the leaf of Brachychiton acerifolius, aka Illawara flame tree. It has the two projections on the leaf lobes as in the ID plant. Lovely!
