New Zealand Spinach (Tetragonia Tetragonioides) - Start New Zealand Spinach seeds and grow a tasty, nutritious plant for your herb garden! New Zealand Spinach is a warm season perennial that grows as an annual in colder climates. The New Zealand Spinach plant is not frost tolerant like true spinach and is not related to it although it is eaten and prepared the same. The taste is considered to be milder in flavor than true spinach. The leaves are arrow-shaped, thick, succulent and can be picked over a long period of time. The plant grows differently from true spinach as well. Instead of forming a clump, it has weak stems that sprawl and spread up to several feet. It also produces small yellow flowers and seed capsules. Other common names for the herb plant are Everlasting Spinach, Warrigal Greens, Everbearing Spinach or simply Tetragonia.
