I snapped these unidentified purple flowers. Does anyone know what they are? I think they are indigenous to South Africa.
This is Hypoestes aristata; commonly called a ‘Ribbon bush’. Here’s some more detail: http://www.plantzafrica.com/planthij/hypoestesaristat.htm
good work terri, quick on the draw!
Also available in White. The books say you can eat it, like spinach, but I haven’t tried ;>)
i wonder what it tastes like? i don’t think i will be trying it anytime soon.. 🙂
