Lal Verenda(লাল ভেরেন্ডা) - Jatropha gossypifolia


Share at Facebook

রাঙামাটির ঝরনায় পানির দেখা না পেয়ে উদাস হয়ে আশে পাশে হাটাহাটি করার সময় এই ভেরেন্ডা ফুলটা চোখে পরে যায়... এইটা ভেরেন্ডার লাল প্রজাতি...



I am going to present the Red Veranda(লাল ভেরেন্ডা) flower today. This flower is known as Bellyache bush in English. Widely available at the high land of my country Bangladesh(বাংলাদেশ). This flower is from the family Euphorbiaceae. Scientific name of the flower is Jatropha gossypifolia.



Red Veranda is a shrubby plant, but grows as a tree and doesn't have any woody stem. Normally this is an evergreen plant, but can be deciduous during dry season. Leaf color is green when matured, but young leafs are dark reddish. Few of these plants can grow more than 4 meter sometimes.



Red Veranda flower is extremely beautiful. Color of the flower is dark red or scarlet. It has five thick petals. At the same tree you can find both male and female flowers. Possibly inside the photo of this article is a female flower. Flowers are quite small, so anyone can hardly notice this.



This flower is beautiful, but everything from the plant is useful and dangerous at the same time. For example the whole plant is capable to provide different type of medicines(arthritis, eczema, itching, etc). Similarly if any part of the plant is ingested inside can cause severe damage. The seeds and the fruits of the plant are highly toxic. So be careful.
