There are 2 entries:
Purple Velvet Plant (Gynura aurantiaca 'Purple Passion')
Purple Velvet Plant (Gynura aurantiaca)

Is 'PP' truly a cultivar that is somehow different from the plain species, or just one of the nicknames of the species in general?

Looks like it's a cultivar selected out for traits...

"'Purple Passion' (purple passion vine) is a decumbent cultivar featuring trailing or twining stems."

TYVM! I found everything but relevant info when I searched.

This pic does not seem to have any Gynura plants in it:

I agree, I see no type of Gynura in that photo. Maybe @csandt mistakenly uploaded it to the wrong place? I've done that a couple of times myself when uploading numerous photos.

Here is the plant label at Longwood that I thought pertained to the yellow flowers:

Does it seem wrong? If so please delete my image.

Guess it used to be planted there but it certainly isn't in that planter now.

I could move it to the generic Kalanchoes (Kalanchoe) entry since that is what is primarily in that photo.

After looking at the Missouri Botanical Garden description and photo (see below), I think the plant label must be referring to the purple-edged leaf in front of the plant label. For this reason, please delete my image and accept my apology for misinterpreting Longwood's label.

Please delete my original entry, and I will upload a modified view to Kalanchoes. Thank you very much for catching my error.
