Arrowroot (Canna edulis) is closely related to the canna lily. It is a leafy, clumping perennial with a tasty root, or rhizome. Young leaves and shoot tips can be cooked and eaten like spinach. Grow thick borders of arrowroot along fences to prevent weeds, or as single rows to create shade and shelter around salad vegetables. Use leftovers in the compost or chop them up to use as mulch. Great for chook feed also.
