Cnidoscolus aconitifolius

Possibly native to Colombia. The flowers attract a lot of bees. The leaves can be eaten if cooked as they are toxic otherwise. The taste is somewhat like spinach and it is a good source for protein, vitamins and antioxidants and may have an antidiabetic effect. Photographed in Barranquilla.
