Commonly known as the Spiny-Fruited Pick-a-Back, this common garden weed looks so pretty and contrasted beautifully against the concrete edge of the monsoon canal.

From the Euphorbiaceae Family, it has typical flowers and fruits that hang on the underside of its leaves. The fruit capsules have triangular spines to hook itself onto unsuspecting animals to help disperse its seeds.
