You’ll find this fuzzy-leaved house plant hard to resist! The jagged-edged, dark green leaves are shrouded in a covering of soft, bright-purple hairs. In winter, spidery, golden flowers are borne at the tips of each stem, making a striking colour contrast with its leaves. With a spreading habit, Gynura aurantiaca ‘Purple Passion' makes an eye-catching focal point as it spills over the edges of its pot. Despite its exotic looks, Gynura is easy to grow, thriving in a bright spot, away from the scorch of hot, direct sunlight. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

1 x 12cm potted gynura plant (KB8631)

How to Grow
Position Gynura in a lightly shaded spot, well away from the scorch of hot, direct sun. Velvet Plants require temperatures above 15C (59F) and enjoy good humidity.
