Sesbania grandiflora
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. vegetable hummingbird, agathi, West Indian pea
Agati is a fast growing, tropical legume tree to 10 m high with beautiful, large white or red flowers. It does best in warm humid areas and will not tolerate temperatures below 10C or frost. It is useful as a shade or nurse tree for other crops, such as black pepper. The leaves can be cut as animal (ruminant) fodder but avoid cutting the main stem.

Aloe Vera UT
Syn. Aloe barbadensis, Aloe indica, Aloe perfoliata var. vera
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. Chinese Aloe, Indian Aloe, True Aloe, Barbados Aloe, Burn Aloe, First Aid Plant
Aloe vera is a succulent plant grown commercially in Queensland for use in skincare products. It is thought to have originated in northern Africa. It is a perennial plant with narrow, curving, grey-green leaves with small spikes along the leaf margins. The yellow tubular flowers appear in summer and it forms suckers at the base. It grows to approx. 60 - 100 cm tall. Although the plants can cope with dry conditions they prefer regular watering. Good drainage is essential. Position from full sun to partial shade. In cold, wet or frosty climates they are best grown in a large terracotta pot and moved to a sheltered position in winter. Aloe vera has been used medicinally since biblical times, generally as an ointment for burns, cuts and rashes, as well as in various skincare preparations. The part used is the thick, mucilaginous gel inside the leaf.

Asparagus 'Sweet Purple' UT
Asparagus officinalis
Not to Norfolk Island, TAS or WA
'Sweet Purple' asparagus has large, deep-burgundy spears which are very tender with a mild, nutty flavour when cooked. The spears are much more tender than green asparagus because the vascular bundles have less lignin per spear, which make the spears less stringy. This allows the cook to use the entire spear with very little waste. It also has a 20% higher sugar content. Because of this extra sweetness, this vegetable is often eaten raw. Some restaurants like to garnish salads with purple asparagus. More info on growing asparagus...
Provided as 1 crown.

Baby Sunrose UT
Aptenia cordifolia
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. heartleaf iceplant.
A spreading, drought-tolerant, succulent groundcover in the iceplant family with small dark pink flowers and bright green leaves. The leaves and flowers can be used as a salad herb and are reputed to be eaten by poultry so it might make a good chook forage in drier areas. As a groundcover for fire-prone zones it is hard to beat, as a blow torch won't set it alight. Butterflies and bees enjoy the flowers. It has some weed potential in southern states so check with your local Landcare before planting. To avoid garden escapes try growing it in a hanging basket.

Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. 'Hotlips', 'Locoto', 'Manzano'
This is a true heirloom, having been grown for thousands of years by the farmers of Bolivia and Peru. A 'must have' plant for anyone who likes really hot chillies, it grows well from the tropics right through to Tassie (in a suitably sheltered position). It is considered the most cold-tolerant of the chillies. The fruit is produced on a sturdy, wide, bushy, perennial shrub up to 2 - 3 m tall.

The fruit is fleshy like a capsicum so is a good choice for chilli sauce.
