    No, this plant is a bit bigger! It's a shrub/tree... :)

    Does a hibiscus count as a tree? Or a lavatera or raspberry or ribes? Humm...

    No, they are normally shrubs... but this is not a Hibiscus, not a Lavatera, not a Rubus and not a Ribes... :)

    P.S.: And that reddish something is NOT a leaf! :)

    If that reddish something isn't a leaf, I'd say it's a flower bract, making my guess.... Schefflera?

    A Schefflera with so huge and reddish flower bract?! Hm... maybe Schefflera looks a bit different in Ecuador... :)

    But you are on the right way! It is a bract... but fruit bract...

    The boulevard Shefflera down the street bloomed recently with huge red bracts, so anything's possible. Anyhow, I have no idea of the scale in your photo. If it's a fruit bract, though, would that make it a Rhus?

    YES! Congratulations! :) Hm, but I think it's a simple C. avellana 'Atropurpurea'...

    The length and shape of the involucre indicates a hybrid between Filbert Corylus maxima and Hazel C. avellana.
