I don't see why you couldn't. Just be aware that it can become highly invasive, and kill off other species in the area. As long as you are prepared to handle this, then I don't see why not. Here is an article for more information on the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/kochia/kochia-plant-info.htm
