The photo shrinks when clicked upon the thumbnail making it hard to see any details.
Can you give us clearer larger photos from the leaf-arrangement, flower/fruits, if possible the whole plant etc..
We also need more info like the location where this plant is growing.

From the little I can see it makes me think about Heisteria, but it could well be something else..

I can't see the photo very clearly either but for comparison, check out these two that have been mentioned:

Heisteria silvianii
Mickey Mouse Plant (Ochna serrulata)

agree with Metrosideros and plantladylin , definitely Ochna, but I am leaning toward Ochna thomasiana (O. kirkii). the leaves seems rounder in OP's photo, O serrulata usually longer and more serrated.
