Spicy Jatropha

Also called Peregrina.

This shrub was spotted in a so called ‘function hall’ and that should explain all the yellow wire and the tiny light bulbs all over the shrub. I suspect they grow the shrubs to serve their fancy lighting purposes.

The tiny star shaped flowers grow in clusters.   This perennial shrub has many slender trunks but apparently can also be pruned to a single one.

Botanical name: Jatropha integerrima    Family: Euphorbiaceae (castor family

Shrub photographed at AS Rao Nagar, Hyderabad.
