Unknown vine

Hi I was just wondering if anyone knew what kind of a vine this is. It seems to be similar to a bougainvillea. Sorry for the bad pics and thanks for any info!

Here are the seeds. They are shaped like miniature starfruit.

I don't know what it is, but I sure would like to have some of it! If you're interested in trading seeds and/or cuttings, e-mail me.

Through some of my own research, I accidently descovered what this is (I think). It is defininatly a Combretum, but i'm not sure exactly what kind. It looks very similar to Combretum grandiflorum. I'm still not done with my research on it, but I have a lead!

Here's a picture of Combretum grandiflorum I found on a website. Click it to go to the site.
