Ginseng Jawa (Talinum paniculatum gaertn.)

Ginseng Jawa (Talinum paniculatum gaertn.) surprised to see this in my friend's garden in Sandringham, 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.
