Coral Plant

Red Jatropha Multifida is the botanical name. Other common names: Physic Nut or Guatemala Rhubarb. We use to call it Jatrofa here. It isn’t my best shots. I captured it from a rather far distance; as I often fail taking picture of butterflies. Have you noticed that one butterfly has broken wings?

Coral plant is a quick growing evergreen shrub with a single trunk, a loose, spreading crown and a typical height in cultivation of 6-10'. The leaves are dark green above and lighter beneath. The flowers are reminiscent of red coral and borne in flat-topped clusters on long stalks held above the foliage. Coral plant blossoms on and off all year long, mostly during hot weather.

I share these pictures for
Today's Flowers; you’ll find many beautiful flowers from around the world there.
