Use it raw in salads or tossed in at the end of a stir-fry. It is a low bushy plant between 30 and 100 cm tall. It grows and thrives in partial shade and high soil moisture.Weed warning: It self-sows very readily, care should be taken to avoid it becoming invasive
Other Names: Waterleaf, Surinam Purslane, Philippine spinach, Florida spinach, Javanese ginger, #AM
