Help a Lazy Girl Appease Her Curiosity

Ok, all you botany experts out there: I need help figuring out what this plant is. It grows at one of the UW buildings about 2 blocks from my apartment. I didn't notice it until a week ago, although I've walked past this building daily for nearly a year. I don't know if it's pink all year round, or just in the fall.



The "flower" seems to actually be some kind of pod that contains a moist orange fruit like substance inside.


Have any of you seen this before? Do you know what it is?

I'm sure I could probably do some research on my own, but that would be way too much like homework. :)

I don't know what it is but it is very pretty!! The leaves look a little like a poinsettia but I know it isn't that! Sorry!

I don't know what it is either, but we have them in Florida and they are bright yellow. I think they are beautiful, but have no idea what it is. And I am in the Garden Club. Go figure.

Okay, I'm going to be no help here. Just wanted to say that that plant looks really cool, especially the pink leaves. I've never seen anything like it. I'm also curious to know what it is.

Have no clue what it is, besides beautiful!

I think that is a type of Magnolia, their fruit can be kinda pink and if you break it open it has kind of orange pods inside.

Nice color, no clue. Good luck!
