    Gynura crepioides ‘Okinawan Spinach’

    Gynura crepioides is commonly known as Okinawan Spinach, it is native to Indonesia. Okinawan Spinach is commercially grown in China as a green, it is not a true spinach. Both the stems and the leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. The top of the leaves are dark green and the undersides are purple.  Okinawa Spinach has an unique flavor but makes a great addition to salads.

    This green is also known as cholesterol spinach, and there are many claims that it can lower cholesterol levels. This plant will thrive in pretty much any type of soil from clay to silt to sandy soils. It does well in any type of light other than full shade, but will grow best in full sun to partial shade. Okinawa Spinach is not a heavy feeder, and is relatively pest-free.

    Purple Tree Collard Cuttings

    Purple Tree Collard

    Tree collard greens are tender and delicious in cool weather, so they are a good choice for a low-maintenance winter vegetable in mild climates.  High-yielding year-round. This plant makes a thick stalk that will branch and crawl around, or can be trimmed to a single “trunk” and staked.

    They are always perennial in zones 8-10. In zone 7, they are normally perennial except in very prolonged cold spells, or if freeze/thaw conditions prevent drainage around the roots.

    They can be grown as annuals in colder regions.  If you have established plants, you could try taking cuttings as winter begins and rooting them indoors for planting out the following spring.  They would need a greenhouse, very sunny window, or other well-lighted place.

    We offer these in sets of two cuttings with instructions for rooting them.

    We cannot guarantee that both cuttings will survive; conditions while in route or in your own area may keep them from being successful.

    We offer 2 cuttings that can be easily rooted.  Instructions will be included on how to root them.
