Alternanthera sissoo (hort, Brazilian spinach, Samba Lettuce) (0.25m)*
Brazilian spinach is a low growing perennial leaf vegetable, which forms a neat mound to 30 cm high, rather than spreading in a mat. This growth habit makes it a handy plant for edging paths, especially in partial shade as it is quite shade-tolerant. The leaves are mid green, round and crinkled. Use it steamed or stir-fried rather than in salads.
