purple passion


Years ago I had a plant called ” purple passion”. It has purple hairs on the leaves which gives the leaves a purple look…the edges of the leaves are a little jagged. Do you carry this house plant???

Yes, we do carry the purple passion plant, Gynura aurantiaca.  This is an unusual, old fashioned plant that will vine if you do not keep it pruned back.  It likes a bright, indirect light and can be quite thirsty so you need to water regularly.  One funny fact about this plant is that when it blooms you may want to pinch off the buds before they open, they can be quite stinky!  It is a beautiful plant and is unlikely to flower when grown indoors.  Easy to care for and great in hanging baskets or on a table.
