Botanical Name: Tetradenia riparia

The Nutmeg Bush, or Tetradenia riparia, is a beautiful, semi-deciduous shrub native to southern Africa. Displaying grey-green leaves and charming lavender-pink flowers, it adds a touch of beauty to any garden. Although called "Nutmeg Bush," it's not related to the tree that produces nutmeg spice (Myristica fragrans).

Growing Conditions

In Queensland, this bush can be grown year-round. It prefers a sunny to partially shaded spot with well-drained soil. The Nutmeg Bush is drought-tolerant but appreciates regular watering during extended dry periods. With the potential to grow up to 2.5 meters tall and wide, it needs adequate space.

Medicinal Uses

Traditionally, the Nutmeg Bush is used in medicine for ailments like respiratory conditions and fever. Its essential oil is known for antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Always consult a healthcare provider before using it for medicinal purposes.

Culinary Uses

While not a typical culinary ingredient, some African cultures have used it as a flavour. However, Its use in food should be approached cautiously and after consulting with a knowledgeable professional.
