Although not commonly grown in cultivation, the Nodding Saltbush produces attractive small, sweet red berries. Leaves can also be boiled and eaten.

When planted en masse, the plants make a good ground cover, suitable for sloping banks, small areas between shrubs or large open expanses.

It can climb low fences or over obstacles to 1 metre. It has 2 cm long succulent leaves and green ball-shaped flowers in summer, followed by small juicy edible red berries in autumn.

Occurs in all states and territories.

Prefers a well-drained, moist soil in a sunny position to partly shaded, drought, and frost-resistant. Tolerates saline conditions, including salt-laden winds.

Please Note: Although many of the traditional Bush Food and Medicine plants are now commercially produced in various forms, we recommend you re-search these before using them as any form of food or medicine. Some parts of the plant may not be edible, or some may need to be prepared before they are safe to eat or use. We do our best to describe their traditional & modern uses. The purchaser is responsible for ensuring they are fit for their intended use.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia, seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoiding the coldest and hottest months. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C

  1. Sow seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix.
  2. Sprinkle a light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed. Do not bury the seed too deeply.
  3. Place in a warm, shaded, or semi-shaded position.
  4. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  5. Germination generally occurs in around 14-28 days in suitable conditions.

*Please note:

  • Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
  • As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
  • These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
