Description

Rhagodia baccata. 3.7L coir pot.

This very hardy, perennial shrub is native to the coastal regions of south west WA.

The leaves are succulent-like and can be boiled or steamed. Similar in taste to salty spinach.

Small red berries appear from late summer to autumn, which are high in anti-oxidants.

The plant is drought tolerant once established and should grow about 1.5m in height.

It prefers a full sun position but can handle some shade.
