Introducing the Purple Passion Plant (Gynura aurantiaca)
A botanical marvel that adds a touch of exotic beauty to any indoor or patio setting. Native to South-East Asia, these unique plants are known for their dark green leaves adorned with thick violet hair, creating a striking purple aura.
As the Purple Passion Plant matures over its 3–5-year lifespan, the coarse hair on its leaves starts to thin out, resulting in a change in its saturation and vibrancy. In its later years, the plant blooms with beautiful burnt orange flowers, signifying maturity. However, it’s worth noting that these flowers can exude an unpleasant aroma, which may be undesirable in confined spaces. Many gardeners choose to remove the flowers to maintain a pleasant atmosphere.
When cultivating this plant indoors, it thrives in bright, indirect sunlight, making it a perfect addition to your home or office.
And here’s a fun fact: Despite the name ‘Purple Passion,’ the Latin name for the plant, ‘aurantiaca,’ means orange. This is because the Purple Passion Plant produces bright orange flowers, though they may take some time to bloom.
Our Purple Passion Plant comes in a custom-made 17cm white ceramic pot adorned with a unique purple dragon design, making it not only a beautiful addition to your indoor garden but also a conversation starter. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own this exceptional plant and pot combination.
