    Thanks to Melanie Clark’s follow up pics, observation and her conclusion identifying the plant as Talinum fruiticosum aka Talinum triangulare, Ceylon spinach.

    This might be ‘Jewels of Opar'(Talinum paniculatum). With out the flowers, I am not able to confirmed its ID. Even if this is ‘Jewls of Opar’, please check with the experts before consuming any new plants. Link below said: ‘Jewels of Opar'(Talinum paniculatum) ” Leaves are edible.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talinum_paniculatum
