Artist's Description

Two intriguing and brightly colored seeds in the Oregon rain. The bush is large and has leaves like a lilac..these seeds are very small…the flowers were white.

This tree is one of many varieties of clerodendrum:
Clerodendrum trichotomum Verbenaceae
Harlequin Glorybower, Peanut Butter Tree kle-ro-DEN-drum tri-ko-TO-mum

Broadleaf deciduous shrub/tree, coarse, 10-20 ft (3-6 m). Leaves simple, opposite, 10-23 cm x 5-10 cm, ovate to elliptic, tip acuminate, base wedge-shaped to truncate, margin entire (usually), dark green, soft hairy, when bruised they have the odor of peanut butter. Flowers white, appear in late summer and early fall, fragrant; showy red calyxes cover small, and ultimately, bright blue fruit.
Sun to part shade. Best in a deep, light, well drained soil. May freeze back in cold winters. Suckers freely.
Hardy to USDA Zone (7)8 Native to Eastern China and Japan
Clerodendrum: from the Greek, klero, chance, and dendron, tree (some are tree-like), alluding to the unpredictable medicinal properties of plants in this genus. trichotomum: branching into three.
