The Jatropha Integerrima, also known as Peregrina or Spicy Jatropha, is a tropical plant species native to Cuba and the West Indies. The variegated variety adds a colorful touch to the garden with its green leaves that are marginally lined with yellow or cream.


  1. When to Plant: It can be planted at any time of the year, but the best time is in the spring or early summer.

  2. Where to Plant: Choose a location with well-drained soil and full sunlight.

  3. How to Plant: Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, ensuring the plant is at the same depth as it was in the pot.


Jatropha Integerrima is a fast-growing, drought-tolerant shrub or small tree that can grow up to 15 feet tall. However, it can be pruned to maintain a smaller size. It requires moderate water, and it is best to allow the soil to dry between watering.


  1. Watering: Water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between watering sessions.

  2. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer in spring and mid-summer to encourage vigorous growth.

  3. Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring to maintain the desired shape and size.

Pest and Disease Management

The variegated Jatropha is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, it can be susceptible to root rot if overwatered or planted in poorly drained soil.


The Jatropha Integerrima adds a burst of color to any landscape with its vibrant foliage and bright red flowers. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, it also attracts pollinators such as bees and butterflies, improving biodiversity. It is drought-tolerant, making it an excellent choice for xeriscaping and low-water-use gardens.
