Spicy red evergreens…

Not only is this tree-like shrub evergreen it also blooms yearround atracting hummingbirds and butterflies. Spicy Peregrina (Jatropha integerrima) produces clusters of delicate red flowers. I came across this mature shrub that was indeed more tree-like than shrub. It graced the edge of a home’s lot and had plenty of room to spread out and flourish. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
This northener is always impressed by what seems to be the “evergreen” seasons of southern Florida. Spicy Peregrina is officially evergreen. It lends itself as an indoor potted plant for cooler climates with a warning that all parts are poisonous; so keep away from children and pets. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
