Octopus Tree or Umbrella Tree

Schefflera (Brassaia) actinophylla


The colourful flowers caught my eye. This is the first time I saw such a tree...and these flowers.


Roadside tree. However it was inside a walled compound, so I could not get any closer.


Apparently the name Octopus Tree comes from the inflorescence. Schefflera actinophylla
