This plant is a great edible native plant, and grows naturally along coastal areas in southern states of Australia. It can be a compact plant like parsley, or have a cascading form which looks great grown on banks or in hanging baskets and pots. It grows best in part shade, but can also be grown in sun with a bit of extra care. It seeds itself readily. A good bush tucker plant for smaller gardens and balconies, as well as larger areas, and an attractive container plan, with its attractive ferny foliage.
It can be used like parsley or celery in dishes like salads, stews and soups, and has a nice flavour.
