Foliage which resembles Euodia Ridleyi, and with tiny white flowers all over. Could it be the flowering version of Euodia Ridleyi?
This is something new for me. According to Angie of I-Vision Nursery in Tropicana, it is so much alike but this species is from South Africa. I've been browsing through the internet but can't find anything on this. Does anyone know?
As mentioned by Autumn Belle, Euodia Ridleyi is our native plant and it is so called after Mr Henry Nicholas Ridley, the English botanist and geologist, who was responsible for establishing the rubber industry in the then Malaya Peninsula (now known as Malaysia).
Tiny white flowers at the left hand corner while the rest have wilted and turned brown.

Commonly known as Evodia, this is the said Euodia Ridleyi, ..see the similarities in foliage?
I really love this plant. Truly awesome foliage. This is the only memory I have now of this true beauty because the pests destroyed all of its lovely foliage overnight.
You can see the tiny white flowers better in the above. And what do you know, the flowers have faint smell of 'pandan' leaves!
This picture was taken a day after and has more new white flowers blooming among those wilted ones.
Aaahh, last but not least, the flower pot.... I couldn't resist its simplicity and the 'black and white' combination :)
Cost RM18. Pretty neat eh?
Thanks for dropping by :)
