Chwinamul (취나물) can refer to a number of leaf vegetables growing in the mountains and fields, which has heart-shaped serrated leaves and unique fragrance.

The word chwinamul in its strict sense refers only to chamchwi(참취, "edible aster"). However, there are about a hundred varieties of chwinamul that grow naturally in Korea, including sixty odd edible varieties.[1] Among them, chamchwi(참취, "edible aster"), gomchwi(곰취, "Fischer's ragwort"), gaemichwi(개미취, "Tatarinow's aster"), miyeokchwi(미역취, "Asian goldenrod"), surichwi(수리취, "deltoid synurus"), matari(마타리, "golden lace"), and gaksichwi(각시취, "maiden saussurea") are the most eaten varieties.
