We are excited to begin selling Longevity Spinach (gynura procumbens), a nutritious perennial edible green that can be grown year round in frost free areas. For people living in colder climates it can be kept in a pot and brought indoors during the winter. It is a prolific grower and forms a dense carpet as it spreads. You can also easily propagate more plants from cuttings. It is known to be a superfood, with a number of health benefits (antihypertensive, cardioprotective, antihyperglycemic, anticancer, antimicrobial, antioxidant, organ protective, and antiinflammatory activity). Can be used in salads, stir fries, and green juices.
This plant is well rooted and comes in a 2.5” peat pot. We will send growing information along with your plant. Please do not order if you are expecting unseasonably warm temperatures or weather below freezing as your plant may be damaged during transit. We recommend potting up your plant in a one gallon pot upon arrival.
