RE: Jatropha integerrima

Jim-  If you've still got room in that cutting box, I'd love to try one!

Subject: [CHAT] Jatropha integerrima

This is a wonderful plant that I've just figured out how to propagate. 
Blooms all year [truly; no nursery hype] and is very adaptable--I have 
two I'm raising as single-stem patio trees, one that is planted in my 
front hedge [red flowers among the purple Mexican petunias and yellow 
shrub allamanda], and--the most glorious of all--one that is espaliered 
along the entry fence to the back patio.

I don't know how far north they will survive or whether they can become 
house plants or over-winter indoors.

Anyway, if you'd like to try a rooted cutting in your neighborhood, let 
me know. I plan to start a bunch more cuttings next weekend and will 
accommodate all I have cutting-box room for.
