Hi magnusop, Welcome!
You didn't tell us where (state, country or part of the world) this plant is growing. Do those leaves in the background belong to the same plant? Those buds remind me a bit of Medinilla Chandelier Tree (Medinilla cumingii) but the leaves aren't right for that one.

If you can give us an idea of where this plant is growing that should help narrow down a more exact ID.

Thanks for trying to help and sorry for the lack of details. A friend of mine took this photo in Italy today and the background leaves are from the same plant.

It sure looks like Medinilla to my eyes but my eyes aren't all that great. Green Grin! Hopefully others will chime in with suggestions before long.

Here's another photo of Medinilla for comparison: http://www.fairfun.net/tour08/...
