This is a red-leaved grafted Cerbera, with pinkish-red flowers, presumably from Indonesia. 

Interestingly, the rootstock is sprouting green leaves with white flowers, and is completely oblivious to the more showy scion grafted above it. I know it makes good horticultural practice to prune off the undesirable branches to prevent the more vigorous rootstock from overtaking the whole plant.
