Ginseng Jawa (Talinum paniculatum gaertn.) 土人参

Ginseng Jawa (Talinum paniculatum gaertn.) 
土人参surprised to see this in my friends garden in Auckland. Growing wild. They grew wild in my Singapore garden. I picked the flowers as cut flowers, but they drop off in a day. My aunty told me that it can be used as ginseng and the leaves are edible.

AT LYNDIA'S GARDEN in Sandringham.

Talinum fruticosum is an herbaceous perennial plant that is native to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and much of South America
