All white five-petal cnidoscolus aconitifolius flowers on a green inflorescene with green flower buds and bee sipping the nectar
Cnidoscolus aconitifolius (Chaya or Tree Spinach)

One of five species of the genus Cnidoscolus native to Colombia with a habitat below 3,500 feet. 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 may have more nutrients than spinach leaves. It is a good source for protein, vitamins and antioxidants and may have an anti diabetic effect. Photographed in Barranquilla.
