Dear Jason,
That`s the plant!   I have many memories of the large Samaan trees (to those
that do not know this tree, it is a HUGE legume, looks like an over-grown,
umbrella-shaped oak, the record specimen on T`dad had a trunk w/ a dia. of
over 12 ft., and covered an acre with the spread of branches!) on my Aunt`s
estate, their horizontal limbs just COVERED by the color red almost covering
the dark green leaves of this thickly growing species, the berries of ripe
fruits of this Anthurium being the cause!!
