An attractive perennial species native to Southeast Asia but grown in many other places as a house plant. In warm regions, it is frequently grown outdoors on patios and in gardens and in colder climates as a house plant.

Gynura aurantiaca is an evergreen perennial growing to 30 cm tall, the stems sometimes growing straight up but other times reclining against other objects, when stems can reach 2m. Leaves, stems, and bracts are dark green, covered with soft purple hairs that impart a velvety feeling to the plant. One plant can produce 1-5 flower heads, each on its own flower stalk. The flowers have a rather strong odour. Each head contains several yellow, orange, or red disc flowers but no ray flowers.

Common name: Velvet Plant; Purple Passion
