Thetty plants are more significant than the flowers.Coz the plant is having medicinal values..Thetty plant roots, stems etc are used for treatment of skin diseases..

I remember some shrub like plants of thetty in ma garden, was so cute when flowering.The dense flowers packed between the lush green curly small leaves of the plant made them special in my garden. They were dwarf Ixora ornamental plants

Ixora plants blooms throughout the year and can make the garden much colourful. Ixora plants needs very little care relatively to other heavily cared ornamental plants like Rose. Dwarf ixora flowers makes the garden much beautiful with a bushy appearance. Dwarf Ixoras has very small curly leaves in little bushy shrubs. Ixora flowers can be kept fresh in vases with water for a number of days which make them ideal for flower arrangements in vases inside home.

  1. It is amazing to learn that those yellowish flowers "thetty?" have medicinal purposes. These are the individual flowers which are of different maturity than the rest in the same umbel. Most flowers change color as they mature or dehisce, that is the reason!

  2. when i was a kid, i ate this flower and it tasted somehow sweet :D
