Bower Spinach is a bright-green ground cover that has edible leaves and berries that can be made into delicious pestos, garnishes, and more. The delicious berries have a flavour that is sweet but salty, and makes a great preserve. It is recommended that you cook the leaves prior to eating.
Bright yellow flowers cover the plant, giving it a glorious glow of green and yellow in the cooler and warmer months of the year.
