Coastal Saltbush Plant // Atriplex cinerea


Saltbush is a delicious native plant with salty leaves and bitter berries which can be used in stir fries or even as a salad. Saltbush is an exceptionally hardy plant, with beautiful pale-green leaves which look great. 

Native across the southern coastline, they've been used for thousands of years by Aboriginal Australians both as food and as traditional medication. 

Harvest the leaves a required and enjoy!


 Harvesting: Simply harvest the leaves and eat fresh, or cook for a delicious salty kick! Tip: Soak for 5 minutes in vinegar before cooking (tastes great!)

Growing Conditions: Different to Old Man's Saltbush, Coastal Saltbush is just a hardy and thrives in Melbourne's coastal regions. Tolerant of many soil types, it thrives in both shady and full-sun positions. Exceptionally drought-tolerant, you won't find established plants being affected too severely by prolonged dry-spells. 

Size: As a native shrub, it will bulge out over time. It will grow to approximately 1 metre high, and 2 metres wide.

Loving my new Saltbush plant - I've planted it in a pot, it arrived looking healthy, can't wait for it to grow so I can start experimenting with it...

Great plant

I am absolutely loving my saltbush, it arrived a little limp but after lots of watering and care and tlc it quickly recovered


So I bought this saltbush plant about a year ago, and it is THRIVING. It’s been moved twice now and I’ve finally found the perfect place for it. Amazing little plant, highly recommend to anyone starting a little bush food garden 😀

Excellent safe delivery

Arrived with other plants l also ordered all ready to plant. Great success

Creating a food forest

My plants arrived so quickly and in great condition, looking forward to creating my food forest with a mixture of bushfood plants, edible weeds and conventional fruit and vegetables.


Prompt delivery and both salt bush and native raspberry are growing strongly.
