What is this plant?

jeri12blankJune 4, 2008


I'm new to gardenweb, but not to gardening. I saw and photographed a plant from my neighbors yard that I've never seen before. They don't speak English, so I can't ask them what is is. The leaves look like papaya, but it has red flowers like a jatropha.It's about 8 ft tall and leggy except for leaves and flowers at it branch tips I'm stumped. Any thoughts?

I also have this, but don't know the name off hand. Post this picture in the FLorida Gardening forum here at GW and I bet you'll get an answer quickly.
