Gynura aurantiaca

Gynura aurantiaca

Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z9-10)
Flowers yellow
Size vine to 9'
Light part-full shade
Cultural notes rich, well-drained soil

Plant purchased from Peckerwood garden's nursery area without any further information. The species is an upright-growing plant, while the more commonly cultivated plant is a hybrid named 'Purple Passion'. I'll never know exactly what we had on our hands, because the plant didn't last long once hot weather arrived. On my next visit to Peckerwood, I noticed that the nursery label now says it needs shade, which is not what I provided.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
