(Gynura crepiodies) Indonesian native takes full sun to partial shade; must have adequate water; perennial under frost-free conditions. Stunning leaves are green on top and magenta-purple on the underside, are appreciated for their pungent flavor. Delicious when used in salads; equally good as a potherb, in stir fry or tempura. (Do not overcook.) There is some evidence that this unusual herb can lower serum cholesterol levels. Makes an attractive, edible ground cover where the growing season is long enough. Be sure to take cuttings in fall to overwinter in frost-free location for next year’s crop. Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Please make sure you are ready for your order in your zone as these young, tender plants generally have no resistance to cold. 


Plant Care Instructions: 

Plants cannot tolerate a hard freeze; however, northern growers can grow them in hanging baskets and bring them indoors in the winter or grow them outdoors simply for their gorgeous flowers (but no fruit). Plant outdoors after chance of frost has passed. Choose a sunny site with well-drained soil. Trellis or stake plants to keep them from taking over the garden, as they will otherwise grow into a tangled mess! Prune vines to create airflow and to promote fruiting. WARNING: PLANTS ARE VERY YOUNG AND TENDER. DO NOT PUT THEM OUTSIDE UNTIL ALL DANGER OF FROST HAS PASSED.
