    1. Hi Rio, I wouldn't really know how to identify, perhaps you can post a picture of your plant on a gardening forum for ID-ing. As just an ornamental plant, it is merely of academic interest, but if planning to use medicinally, best to check with proper sources for actual verufication. Also, as a treatment for diabetes, I have got to know that it is somewhat controversial. Rgds, ila.
