And yet, an appropriate addition to my garden.
Excoecaria cochinchinensis is also know as Chinese croton, blindness tree, buta buta and the jungle fire plant. But I’m sure I will forever refer to it as my Garden Clown 🤡
It is so stunning with its unusual leaves. The upper surface is green or variegated.
While the underside of the leaves is a deep red (or maroon).
I couldn’t walk past it in the nursery and plan to place it in a hanging basket.
I’ve no doubt it will be a stunner.
