What is this plant? Someone is selling them on Craigslist, but didn't name the plant. The flower looks like a Penta, but the leaves not as much. Can you tell what it is?

Maybe Clerodendrum bungei?

I agree, clerodendrum bungei. Very beautiful, but the most invasive of all the clero's IMHO. I would not, could not plant it in my yard. I'd never forgive myself. Made that mistake on another property. They should be paying you to take it away. Sorry, Carol, I know it's pretty.
