During the cool season, Brisbane gardeners can grow silverbeet, kale and cabbages. However, there are a myriad of subtropical leafy greens to turn to when the weather is too hot for these winter annuals.
Surinam spinach is a crunchy and tangy, drought hardy plant. It is very ornamental, with clusters of small pink flowers.
Brazilian spinach is a tasty, nutritious substitute for silver-beet. It is perfect in frittatas, or quiche.
Ceylon spinach is a beautiful clambering vine with delicate pink flowers and dark red berries. The leaves only need a light steam, so add them right at the end of cooking.
Sambung nyawa is a perennial leafy green that tastes like a cross between beans and spinach. It is drought hardy and has orange, butterfly attracting flowers.
