The plant has red flowers and seems to loose its leaves when it flowers. I would like to know what the name of the plant is, so I can read how to get it to flower. It has flowered while I have had it, but its been years.

Hmm, I donīt think that is it. It is all woody except for the leaves!

I wonder, could it be an Abutilon in Bonsai form?

The flowers are much smaller and forms on the stem of the plant.

I don't think it looks like a Jatropha when I google it. As I remember it, it is from New Zealand!
