Also known as Sissoo spinach, Brazilian Spinach is a perennial leafy green ground cover that maintains a compact growth habit, reaching a maximum height of approximately 30 centimeters. Brazilian spinach thrives in subtropical and tropical climates and can be grown in a pot in cooler climates and moved indoors for winter. It can be used in culinary applications much like traditional spinach or silverbeet. When consumed in substantial quantities, it is advisable to steam or boil it due to the presence of oxalates.
In cooler climates grow in a pot and move indoors during the colder months. Cut back to the ground every year, refreshing the foliage. Grow in full sun and protect from excessive waterlogging
