Flowering "Euodia Ridleyi"

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 :)


  1. It's an interesting plant, but not one I am familiar with here. And I do LOVE that black and white pot!

  2. Robin, I've developed a craze over pots! HELP!! :)

  3. I have not seen real evodia flowers before. Mine is still growing leaves, no flowers yet. The foliage looks like evodia and the flowers. The flower pot is lovely. If you are unsure, E. ridleyi leaves are 3-pronged. You can view a picture of the flowers and berries at Top Tropicals website here:

  4. Thanks for sharing the link Ms Belle. So much similarities with this flowering Evodia. Didn't know it have berries!! Wow! This plant is truly fascinating. May it prosper under my care this time :)

  5. do u people know any one isolated a compound from this plant against insects


Thanks for your lovely words...
