Looks like Abrus precatorius

These grow on a vine which can become invasive in tropical areas. Flowers on the vine are fairly small, violet in color and relatively inconspicuous, their real attraction is the bright red seeds that form in pods in the winter.

This vine is cold hardy in zone 9b and warmer. From my experience, it is NOT suitable to grow as an annual in colder zones as it does not bloom the first year from seed.

**Abrus precatorius seeds are very poisonous! ** Found info on
