Heart Pentagon

While walking near the King Street parking entrance of Neal Blaisdell Center  near downtown Honolulu, I noticed what looked like a pentagon created by five dried seed pods.
They had fallen, apparently having dropped their seeds and dried out. Unopened pods still on the tree appeared to be green, with slightly opened ones being red-orange.

Interspersed amongst the green and red were dried clusters like the one on the ground.
I wish I could tell you what species of tree it was, but I have no idea. Anybody care to hazard a guess? I’d appreciate it and will give you a hearty thank you.
