 Gymnocoronis spilanthoides
Family: Asteraceae / Compositae
Senegal tea
Origin: South America
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticWhite/off-white flowersInvasiveSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Gymnocoronis spilanthoides confined to wet marshy soils and still or very slowly flowing waters. It is one of the relatively few members of the very large family Asteraceae to be kept as an aquarium plant. Useful to deprive algae of suspended nutrients in the water.

The leaves are dark green and arranged in opposite pairs along the stem. The edges of the spearhead-shaped leaves are serrated. The numerous, white, ball-shaped flowers, 15 to 20mm in diameter, occur at the ends of stems. Thin, fibrous roots can develop from leaf veins or from any node in contact with moist soil or water.

Family: Asteraceae / Compositae
Purple Passion
Origin: Java, Indonesia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeKeep soil moistOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersInvasive

A perennial vine with velvety-purple-hairy stems and leaves, to 9 feet in containers. The orange flowers are 1 inch across look impressive on purple foliage background. The more sun it receives the richer the color. The soil should be kept moist at all times. During the winter months, we cut our plant back to within 4 nodes from the pot. This helps to keep the plant growing vigorously and helps to keep the color richer. Old growth tends to lose its color.

Gynura crepioides, Okinawa Spinach, Purple Spinach

Click to see full-size image Gynura crepioides
Family: Asteraceae / Compositae
Okinawa Spinach, Purple Spinach
Origin: Indonesia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.Spice or herbEdible

Gynura crepioides is commonly known as Okinawa Spinach, it is native to Indonesia. Okinawa Spinach is commercially grown in China as a green, it is not a true spinach. Both the stems and the leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. The top of the leaves are dark green and the undersides are purple. Okinawa Spinach has an unique flavor with a faint hint of pine, and will add a beautiful aesthetic element to cuisine. This green is also known as cholesterol spinach, and there are many claims that it lowers can cholesterol. This plant will thrive in pretty much any type of soil from clay to silt to sandy soils. It does well in any type of light other than full shade, but will grow best in full sun to partial shade. Okinawa Spinach is not a heavy feeder, and is relatively pest-free. It is good to cut back flowering branches to promote new shoot growth, because the shoots and leaves are what are harvested. Okinawan spinach is very adaptable to container gardening and even grows well on a windowsill. The younger leaves will have a much better flavor than the older leaves. The leaves and young shoot tips can be steamed, used in stir fry, tempura, stews, and soups. Just add them at the very end, if they are overcooked
