Old Man Saltbush

‘de Koch’

Atriplex nummularia

(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)

A native of  the dry areas of  Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, Old Man Saltbush prefers well-drained soils in an open sunny position. It is drought and frost hardy.

An evergreen shrub to 3 metres in the wild, this shrub is useful as a hedge or fence-line plant. The foliage is silver-grey, the flowers insignificant and the fruit is a fan shaped seed case.

It is a high nutrition fodder plant and early settlers used it to treat blood disorders.

Other quantities 50gm, 100gm, 250gm, are also listed.

Oldman  De Kock Saltbush

Native to Western Australia from the Goldfields to the Murchison,  this highly drought and salt tolerant perennial shrub has an upright habit growing to 1.5m. Chatfield’s “stud De Kock” variety is particularly lush in foliage and palatable to stock. The species does not establish well from direct seeding however seedlings are highly successful. Analysis reveals approx 14% crude fibre and 52% invitro digestibility.

Note: ‘Direct seeding’ means to large scale broadcast sow the seed and then let nature take its course.

Buyers must advise if they need a Phytosanitary Certificate for import regulations (extra cost).
