Summer planting
Contrary to popular opinion, summer planting is fine as long as adequate water is provided throughout any prolonged dry periods. This allows you to take advantage of increased summer growth.
Rorippa divaricata
Height: 1m;  Spread: 1m
Matangaoa (Herb)
Perennial herb. Light green leaves up to 15cm long and white flowers. All parts are delicately and pleasantly flavoured, and together with Cooks scurvy grass, native celery, and native spinach, make a great indigenous summer salad.
