Saltbush

An outstanding, edible, silver foliage plant for difficult garden sites such as clay soils, sandy soils, salty soils and dry conditions. Drought tolerant once established, the foliage and seeds have long been used by First Nations people, both as a herb and also cooked, sauteed and as a stuffing - in fact, Atriplex means spinach. The foliage has a lovely, naturally salty flavour and is also high in plant proteins and minerals. Also popular for use as feed for lambs. Suitable for use as an edible hedge.

How to grow

Plant in full sun or part shade in an enriched soil. Plants become drought tolerant once established, but require regular watering to develop a strong and healthy root system. The more nutrients and water your saltbush receives, the larger and more tasty the foliage. Prune regularly to maintain compact growth. Protect from severe frosts.
