SAMBANG DARAH

This is one of my ornamental-medicinal plant's collection.


Sambang darah (Excoecaria cochinchinensis) is a popular plant for medicinal purpose, especially to treat bleeding and dysentery.


This plant is usually grown as ornamental or as a hedge.



It has different color on the same leaf.



The upper side has green color, but on the opposite side has red color.



So unique...
A simple collection.
