Euphorbiaceae Juss.: Jatropha multifida L.: Jatropha multifida L. Sp. Pl. 2: 1006. 1753.

Location: TBGRI, Thiruvananthapuram

saw this plant in a nursery near Chennai. The trade name for this is ‘bottle tree’, owing to the bottle-shaped butress of this small tree. Am I right sir, Am I referring the same plant?

I dont think this grows to the size of tree. Infact the other plant Jatropha podagrica has swollen base and gives a look of pot or swollen as the name podagrica suggests.

This is a very common ornamental plant (bush) in Chennai gardens.
