This Mayan Spinach Tree from Euphorbiaceae Family is most unique and interesting.

I love the dark palmate leaves and the small white flowers. Once planted in the ground, it grows relatively fast. I saw this straggly specimen that I planted at the Fantasy Garden grew from a 0.8 m tall plant into a bushy 1.5-1.7 m tall shrub that attracted some butterflies e.g. Leopard.

I love it so much that I planted a few more specimens at the Silver Garden even though we had only limited stocks of this plant.
