Thank you … for beautiful post.
I guess first post in efi is slightly different.
Thanks … Earlier there’s no images of complete plant and leaves on site as only few inflorescence images were there. Moreover the images of Gynura cusimbua on FOI site was also misidentified however now it is corrected by …
I am talking about this one: Asteraceae Fortnight Part 2-Discoid heads- 09062013GS2 a herb from Naukuchia tal for ID-GS39
Thanks for the link … Yes in that post only flower head images are there which is of matured head with orange florets while in my posted plant the flower heads are not opened and fully matured. However no leaves and plant habit images are there in that post.

It seem to be a species of Gynura but since the heads are are not open I cannot be sure.
I think it may be Gynura bicolor (Roxb. ex Willd.) DC. as per keys at as per efi thread
Leaf abaxial should be purple according to images from POWO and net.
I guess only match looks Gynura cusimbua (D.Don) S.Moore !
Thanks very much … for suggesting the ID. I too think the plant is closer to G. cusimbua.
Hope we get some validating comments. Until then labelling them accordingly in flickr pages.
