Edible leafy shrub native to SE Asia, where it is used as a medicine and as a food. It is cooked as any spinach-like lettuce. Gynura procumbens is often grown in the family garden or patio together with another similar species: Gynura bicolor , called Okinawan Spinach or Purple Longevity Spinach . They both have a similar growth habit and a similar, yet different taste.

These plants are very easy to grow but they can't take any frost. They can be grown in pots and pruned back continuously to produce new greens throughout the warm months.
