Can’t say I’m a fan of the arrowroot tubers, although every now and again a small piece will find a way into my salad (sometimes the leaves also). Very filling, due to the starch I suspect.
As a plant they are handy. They are a perennial, drought proof , and provide a biomass that the chickens love with enough leftovers for the compost. Weeds are unable to find purchase as the tubers rise above the soil, and in sufficient density makes an effective wind break.
Worth a try – and spiders like them!
