(Gynura procumbens) Related to Okinawan Spinach, but lower-growing and more spreading. Reputed to have anti-viral and anti-cancer properties, and to be beneficial in the treatment of diabetes and numerous other conditions. Cultivated throughout southern and eastern Asia.

We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free.

What are the pros? Easy to grow and propagate!

What are the cons? none

Review:

I highly recommend this! It grows especially well in our South Florida heat through the summers, and is a great perennial that tolerates full summer sun, or full shade, poor soil, drought, pest resistant and never had a problem with powder mildew. Yes, it tolerates drought and poor soil, but won't thrive in those conditions. No need for root hormones for cuttings. It roots very easily, although may rot if soil is too wet. I started with two small plants from BCHS and now have more than I need and use as a thick ground cover. Now as far as nutrition, just try looking up the health benefits and you'll be amazed. I use a preventative approach to cancer as someone with it in my family history. So I love the anti-cancer properties. The leaves are succulent and great to use in any sandwich in place of lettuce, and great in green smoothies. I've given quite a few these plants away.

Review:

This plant thrives in my Florida garden. It grows rapidly and produces an abundance of greens. It is also easy to start new plants from cuttings, so it is a perfect plant to share with friends and neighbors. I wouldn't want to be without it!

I ordered these last Spring and by summer they were huge and beautiful. I eat the leaves raw and for juicing. I brought them inside over the winter and they are doing very well.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, takes heat

What are the cons? Minor slime, not too tasty

Review:

I got this plant years ago from a local nursery, which labeled it "cholesterol spinach." It's the easiest thing I grow, besides mustard, but it tastes (to me) a lot better! You can take a tip off, stick it in the soil, water, and it will usually survive. I use it like a spinach substitute for cooking, a lettuce substitute in hot weather. The flavor is quite mild, just kind of green, with a tiny bit of slime, which makes it not the best choice for smoothies. But there is less slime than some of the other more heat-tolerant greens, such as Malabar spinach, Basella malabar or Basella alba. If you don't like the flavor, maybe your chickens and ducks will (mine are spoiled and turn their beaks/bills at it). Or you can use it as green manure, growing it for fertilizer or as mulch material. Takes full sun if watered regularly in the tropics. Also, the slugs will eat it, but not as their first choice, either. A great perennial for warm areas.

What are the pros? excessive heat, humidity

What are the cons? None

Review:

Last year I planted this in a part-shade hugelkultur mound and it is about four feet in diameter; it has gone nuts. It has survived Texas summer drought, excessive fall rains and light frost. It's not as "furry" as Malabar and makes a nice addition to a pot of mixed greens. It hadn't occurred to me to make cuttings - or tea for that matter - so I'm off to make more plants!
