Blooming Caudiciform


Jatropha berlandieri

What can I tell you about this lovely plant? It’s from the Mexico/Texas border area. It goes completely dormant in winter with no green at all, just the caudex. It grows lots of short green vines with nicely lobed leaves and proliferates with red and yellow flowers for most of the year.

I can tell you that we keep it inside in a sunny location, but it doesn’t need all day sun.

I can tell you that it has oily seeds that pop out of the seed pod three at a time.

That’s enough for today.
