Gynura aurantiaca ‘Purple Passion’
Gynura aurantiaca makes a really eye-catching houseplant because of its exotic, purple foliage. Known as ‘Purple Passion’, its leaves are iridescent purple. The finely serrated leaves are a great attraction. It has dense tiny purple hairs that catch the light and these also appear on the undersides and stems of this houseplant – giving the whole specimen a velvety sheen.
- It grows into a lush, vigorous plant if positioned in a bright location without direct sunlight.
- It likes high humidity and this can be achieved by standing the plant on a tray of damp gravel or pebbles.
- Water regularly.
