I'm not certain but it looks like a lovely Clerodendrum, possibly Bleeding Heart (Clerodendrum thomsoniae)

It looks like what I know as Clerodendron thomsoniae, but there is no plant by that name in the NGA database or the Catalogue of Life:

Some pics from Google:

Edit: So why didn't it come up when I typed in Clerodendron! Probably because I should have typed in Clerodendrum lol!

Clerodendrum thomsoniae. Little known fact: both Clerodendrum and Clerodendron are valid genus names for the same genus. Somebody changed it to the greek for a little while so those genus names are valid for that period of time. It's just the genus name spelling.
