Help a Lazy Girl Appease Her Curiosity

Ok, all you botany experts out there: I need help figuring out what this plant is. It grows at one of the UW buildings about 2 blocks from my apartment. I didn’t notice it until a week ago, although I’ve walked past this building daily for nearly a year. I don’t know if it’s pink all year round, or just in the fall.



The “flower” seems to actually be some kind of pod that contains a moist orange fruit like substance inside.


Have any of you seen this before? Do you know what it is?

I’m sure I could probably do some research on my own, but that would be way too much like homework. 🙂
