Buds of Red Jatropha Multifida

Captured in our front yard. The fly was ignored my presence :)
Common names are Coral plant, Physic Nut or Guatemala Rhubarb. I use to call it Jatrofa here. 
Red Jatropha Multifida
 Jatrofa is a fast 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. Jatrofa blossoms on and off all year long, mostly during hot weather (source:Wikipedia).

I share it for
Today's Flowers; you’ll discover lots of stunning flowers from around the world there.
