volunteer seedling

Decatur, GA

I discovered this little seedling today. Its so cute. I guess its a Jatropha podagrica. Anyone else have an idea? I think I had one that bloomed last year but I don't remember any seed pods.

I guess this must be the parent to my seedling. Its blooming again. I will pay attention and see if any seeds are produced.

I added this picture of my Jatropha podagrica on another thread and the leaves are shaped differently. I wonder if it is the same plant? I'd love to have the orange flowers.

I think its the same. They seem to have a lot of variation in leaf shape.

Pinkish red is good too! Any flower, any color is fine with me.

Here is my answer. It obviously did the same thing last year!

Gorgeous plant and flower! Thanks for posting the new photo! They have amazing big laves, hey?

They sure do get big beautiful leaves! This is the leaf I first showed earlier in this thread. It has sure grown. The tweezers is for comparison.

And this is a newer leaf that is taking the shape like helen's. Hers has that beautiful rim of purple and a flower and maybe mine is not in enough sun. I'm so afraid if I put it in any direct sun it will fry the leaves. With current temps of 111 and only 4% humidity it just fries so many plants, even cacti!

Nancy,
Great looking leaf!
I was trying to imagine the tweezers sitting astride the top of the leaf.....
