This is a common shrub, unlike other Jatrophas. Though you can relate it with the others by the flowers, transparent sap, and fibers that you can see when pulling out parts of the leaves
There is a lot of pollen as evident on the blooms. Shown in April. (San Antonio, Tx.)

Grown in Central Florida..
Nearly mature seedpod within the cluster of flowers. This plant needs frost protection in my zipcode.
Peregrina, Spicy Jatropha (Jatropha integerrima) - a view of new growth. Even though I covered it, my plant froze to the ground during the cold winter here. I was very happy to see that is sprouting out very rapidly. I love the colors of the new leaves as they emerge. 5/9/2018, San Antonio, TX
