Edible Landscape

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Talk about having your cake and eating it, too. This pretty fall garden includes more than its share of plants to feed the soul and stomach alike.


There are berries (mulberry, blueberry, serviceberry, and chokeberry), fruits (apple and choke-cherry), nuts (filbert), and edible flowers (daylily) and tubers (sunchokes). Plant two filberts together for pollination. You’ll also need two different cultivars of apples that flower at the same time. A spot with good drainage and at least 6 hours of sunlight is best.

A. 6 sunchokes (Helianthus tuberosus), zones 5–9
B. 1 weeping mulberry (Morus spp.), zones 4–8
C. 3 blueberry (Vaccinium), zones 2–8
D. 7 daylilies (Hemerocallis), zones 3–10
E. 1 rugosa rose (Rosa rugosa), zones 2–9
F. 2 chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa), zones 3–8
G. 1 purpleleaf plum (Prunus cerasifera), zones 5–9
H. 1 rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus), zones 5–9
I. 1 serviceberry (Amelanchier x grandiflora), zones 3–7
J. 1 choke-cherry (Prunus virginiana), zones 3–8
K. 2 filbert (Corylus americana), zones 4–9
L. 2 apple espalier (Malus spp.), zones 5–8
