Funniest Plant Every

And yet, an appropriate addition to my garden.

Yes – this plant is called “Garden Clown”

Excoecaria cochinchinensis is also know as Chinese crotonblindness treebuta 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.
