Particular Looking Tree

Saw this tree growing at an altitude of more than 1200 m in Lebanon. Tried to look it up, by searching for descriptions of its particular looking berries but couldn’t find anything satisfying. I would say it’s not an endemic tree to Lebanon.

    Maybe some thing in the Clerodendron genus. Possible harlequin glorybower (C. trichotomum) or the variety Farges harlequin glorybower (C. trichotomum var. fargesii). I’m not an expert of this genus and can’t tell which is which. Check out these included links for both and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!

    Sorry, it should be Clerodendrum not’Clerodenron’.
