magdaleneladgam: nice to know we have similar plants. Local plant names here can be a headache, we have more than a hundred dialects... hahaha

IanMichaelIleto: It looks like the same plant :^) It has the same flower, the same average height. Here,we call it "cecenet" :^D

looks similar to my spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/643...

This plant can be eaten too. It has the same taste as tomatoes. Wait until the fruit and the wrapper leaf turned into a bit yellow :^)

Thank u,guys, for helping me with the ID. I appreciate it! ;^)

I love these plants. Beautiful color late in the season. Often dried & used as decoration in wreaths and such. That is the seed pod & it turns bright orange often when most other color is gone from the gardens. Spreads rapidly.

Bogor, Jawa Barat, Indonesia
