The Buddha belly plant
Jatropha Podagrica Compacta is a beautiful red butterfly magnet. It is nick-named Buddha belly plant due to its swollen stem, like a Buddha's belly. The Jatropha originally is from Costa Rica and belongs to the family of the Euphorbiaccae.
If the odd coral-like flower of Jatropha Podagrica Compact isn't the eye-catcher of this plant, then definitely the leaves are. The big leaves are dark green on the upside and greyish on the underside.
