Gynura bicolor

Gynura bicolor

Common name Okinawan spinach
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z8-10)
Flowers yellow-orange (early fall)
Size 40"
Light sun-part shade

Perennial from the Himalayas, whose main attraction is its clump of chocolaty-purple leaves steaked with green, with a tropicalesque, fleshy appearance. I wouldn't have guessed it was a composite, but sure enough, the flowers that appear above the foliage in fall are daisy-like. Ours is still small.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston back yard
