Old man salt bush (Atriplex nummularia)

In stock
Product Details

A truly garden worthy edible native plant, grown for its large soft palatable leaves. This is an evergreen shrub to approx. 1.5 m wide x 1.5 m high, and although it prefers full sun, will grow in partial shade. It is extremely drought tolerant and also salt tolerant so good for a grey water system garden. The plants have attractive ornamental foliage. The photos do not do the plant justice, the leaves have an almost metallic silvery sheen to them. Use dried and crumbled leaves in cooking to impart a salty taste. Use fresh leaves in salads, add to slow cooked dishes or wrap meat for grilling. Fry to make a tasty garnish.

Note: This is original plant not the 'de Koch' variety of saltbush
