Mickey Mouse Plant

Another of strange plants at Flamingo Garden - Mickey Mouse Plant!! The upper photo tells you why it got the name. Strange thing is, this red part is not the flower but sepal. Their flowers are bright yellow, similar to the buttercup, and like two months later the sepals enlarge and turn scarlet, revealing green seeds, which turn black as they ripen. But but but.....I saw this exact tree 4 months ago, it was like this! Looks the same every time I see this tree! Yellow flowers cover the plant????I want to see that, when can I come back to see you like that???
