Grow An Autumn Ornamental and Edible Garden For The Best Rainbow Cornucopia Ever

Berries, decorative fruits and veggies, colorful foliage and twigs

Decorate your garden, kitchen and dinners with colorful berries and veggies.

The best time to design your fall garden is in spring.

Grow potted and trellised vines and plants vertically to make use of limited and "dead" space above and below plants and along fences. Indian Corn is beautiful when grown against a black or white fence. Use a tall, colorful shrub or dwarf tree in a pretty pot as a focal point, or a pergola, arch or ornate trellis or gate. Use bamboo or metal teepees. Brussels sprouts look great growing inside tomato cages, or staked in pots. Brussels sprouts will be the last veggie you harvest before winter. Choose an awesome purple type.

I would design this space as part of a larger garden design in the landscape. It partners perfectly with the Autumn Colors and Homegrown Autumn Decorations Designs, and flows naturally into the Winter Garden Design. It can fill in color/blooming gaps in the rest of your landscape, while you're waiting for this Autumn garden to do it's beautiful thing with the rest of your landscape's fall foliage.

Add a birdbath and a rustic solar fountain. 

Use the colors in a sunset, along with bold purples, and bright autumn colors in choosing plants for planting in-ground, and in pots and containers. Don't neglect plants for hanging planters full of color if you have a structure to hang them from.

Accessorize with farm bushel and quart berry baskets, watering cans and new or old galvanized pails (oval galvanized tubs are beautiful as a small planting bed or as part of a group of shapes around the garden). Place these singly, if they're large, or in groups of several sizes. I have large ovals tiered on cinderblock. Use vintage farm and gardening tools and utensils. Vintage white enamelware, graniteware, old rakes and shovels. I have several large red and green vintage tiller/cultivator wheels hanging on my fences (these are quite heavy, so I don't move them much). 

Don't forget the ornamental value of an old rake, cultivator wheels, or a pitchfork. Plant something colorful in an old trough or wheelbarrow. Old wire metal egg baskets are nice for plants or picked gourds. Fill the bushel baskets with Indian corn and gourds chosen for your decor and for harvesting. If you have room for a small vintage farmhouse enamelware table with sides that extend, or find some galvanized old troughs and pails, they would be awesome for designing a changing farm harvest scenario those vintage implements, baskets and accessories. Almost all vintage farm and farmhouse utensils and accessories are weatherproof and sturdy. Rusty items and pieces without their handles still look at home in this type of garden.

Grow both edibles and plants that are purely ornamental. The Thanksgiving turkey platter lined with purple kale and kalettes, rainbow carrots, purple potatoes, cranberries, rutabaga, dwarf Indian corn, Swiss chard, or just mini gourds and pumpkins are perfect as a bed for that big fat turkey - it's a thing of beauty. Fill a vintage basket or cornucopia with grapes, blueberries, crabapples, lemons and limes, dwarf oranges, etc. would be a memorable and photo-worthy part of your holiday and autumn table setting. Foliage is also interesting - some fruits and veggies have ferny or feathery leaves and look very pretty when you leave them right on the picked veggie and lay them on your serving platters. 
The best leaves are from fig trees and grapevines, and they can also be used to wrap your appetizers. Carrot tops are ferny and can be used as a base for your relishes, appetizers, and desserts. Cooked or not, there are a lot of leafy crops and edible plants that are valuable as ornamentals.

Use colorful root crops and dwarf vining veggies and herbs as ground covers, grown on tall trellises, or rambling on fences. And grow as many as possible in pots for a moveable garden to satisfy your desire to decorate and rearrange the garden.

Choose as many diferent perennial plants as possible, to create a fall harvest mini orchard, veggie patch, and a permanent bountiful cornucopia of awesome fall colors and shapes. Choose heirloom and late varieties as seedlings, or grow from seed. Harvest and save heirloom seeds in fall for true-to-type crops each year. There are many colorful plant varieties available, and they have more vitamins and antioxidants than the Plain Jane types. More colors means more vitamins and nutrients.

You can design your garden in a patchwork quilt pattern, using the most colorful leafy greens and veggies in the squares. Or make it an easy square-foot garden placed in the middle of a larger design that includes teepees of vining plants, big pots, and trellises. There are pre-made square foot garden raised beds that have the squares already laid out. Paint the frame of the garden beds with waterproof and food-safe exterior paint in a color that matches the color of your brightest squares. Leave pathways between the garden beds so that you can easily tend and harvest the garden.

Let's Start With The Food.....Colorful and Unusual Edible Veggie and fruit plants that produce in fall

To Go Right To Ornamental Shrubs, Trees, and Plants, click here.

Dwarf, self-fertile Fig Trees In Pots
Most varieties have a small crop of luscious fruits in early spring and another larger crop in late fall. The fig leaves have personality. Most turn a bright yellow before falling. Check your zone for winter hardiness. I grow them in big pots and store the non-hardy varieties indoors once they achieve dormancy. Figs can come in yellow, bright green, purple. Fig trees don't get flowers - the figs are the flowers. I have 6 or 7 dwarfs (mature at 6-10 ft. if left unpruned) in pots, and each one has produced well, even through this year's heatwave. They're not demanding, love the sun and a good drink their first year in your garden. There are several self-fertile dwarf varieties. Choose one or two for your harvest garden. Fig trees can be pruned to stay short, and are gorgeous as espaliered trees, freestanding or along a fence.  

Choose one of the cold hardy varieties if you live in northern states, or choose any one you like if you will be wintering them in a sheltered place or indoors once they go dormant. My favorite is " Kadota" - a self-fertile dwarf that grows it's branches in interesting zen shapes. I also grow Brown Turkey, Celeste and Hardy Chicago fig varieties in pots. The fig leaves are also interesting, and can be used to wrap foods and appetizer "packages", like you would with grape leaves. You rarely see a recipe using fig leaves, but they are edible. They taste something like fig and coconut. You can always just wear them as a loincloth. They cover a multitude of sins. I once used fig leaves as part of a Greenlady costume headdress. Why not.... I used grape leaves pinned to a headband as part of a cluster of purple grapes costume

Visit this page to learn about dwarf fig trees and their care.

Grow smaller varieties staked in pots - Skip the common Globe Eggplant. Go for thin, purple Chinese eggplant and some pink and white beauties. They ripen in August, September (even into October), depending on where you live and the variety you planted. Try "Rosa Bianca" and other ornamental eggplants. They also come in a pink blush, and scarlet. Eggplant comes in different shapes, from globes  to long fingers.

Pomegranates are in season from the end of September through November. When I was a child, nothing said "Fall Is Here" like the arrival of those juicy, fascinating fruits piled high on the Brooklyn, NY pushcarts. Spitting out the pits after we removed the pulp, and seeing who could do it the farthest, was the only time we were allowed to spit without reaping unpleasant consequences. My brother and I were each given one to eat on our walk home from the fruit stands, and we made an awful mess on our clothes and hands. That red juice stain was just about permanent. Grow a pretty dwarf variety in an ornamental pot. They are long-lived, and can grow indoors and outdoors. These are always beautiful in fall and holiday arrangements and decorations. I've made fabric and wood dyes with the juice of a fresh pomegranate. A decorative vintage wooden or wire basket looks great when it's filled with poms and lemons. We all know the health magic of this superfood.

Dwarf Grapevines
Because they reach only 18"-24" in height and produce smaller clusters, they are easy to cultivate. The vines are small, the fruit is full size.
Pixie® Grapes are natural dwarf grapes — not genetically modified or genetically engineered. Grow outdoors, or in containers indoors. 

A trellis helps to keep them upright under the weight of fruit clusters. These vines will produce grapes all season long. I envision them on patios and balconies, and in pots in the Autumn garden. I also envision them in my indoor garden. I never grew grapes before because they take up too much room in my garden space. You can find them in dwarf  Pinot and Cabernet varieties. I would imagine there's a variety out there for me that's great for making jams. The small vines would look lovely in pots growing alongside my Clematis, along my white fence, and sitting on the patio with dwarf fig trees.

Ground Cherries
These are not actually cherries. Also known as dwarf cape gooseberry, and strawberry tomato, this plant produces a small, yellow, edible berry surrounded by a papery husk. Ground cherries typically produce hundreds of fruits on each plant. They are a cousin of the tomatillo. Typically, they bear fruit from July until frost. The fruits must be fully ripe to be edible. At maturity, the husks of fruits become dry and papery, and the fruits drop from the plants. Mature fruits should be collected from the ground after they have fallen. The husk is inedible and must be removed.

Use ground cherries for jams and pies. Their distinctive, sweet-tart taste lends itself to preserves, sauces, and fruit tarts.
Very ornamental. in the garden. Grow them in pretty pots because ground cherries will often send up volunteer plants in the garden. Actually making them a perennial that you plant once. But not necessarily ending up where you wanted to plant them. 

Ornamental peppers
Red, yellow, orange, black or purple peppers, whether hot or sweet, are the most nutritious, A small ornamental pepper called "Fiesta" is quite pretty and delicious. Black Cobra and Black Pearl peppers are spicy. The most ornamental are the mini red, yellow and orange frying and salad peppers with long shapes. These can be attached to wire, raffia or twine and hung while they dry. Colorful potted pepper plants make very pretty accents in the garden and on the patio. Ripe ground cherries have a long shelf life and can be held for several weeks, for both eating, decorating and seed-saving.


Colorful Heirloom Cauliflower
Choose from, orange, purple and a very bright green. These add a wow factor to a veggie and dip tray or serving bowl of mashed. As with other colorful veggies, they bring an increased vitamin and antioxidant content to your diet. "Chef's Choice" is an heirloom seed mix in a variety of colors.

Heirloom Romanesco Broccoli
Stunning shapes in your veggie garden, it has intense, bright green heads and florets in artful fractal shapes. Very Sci-fi on a plate.

Ornamental Cabbage and Ornamental Kale

A decorating, ornamental garden and cornucopia statement, but not much joy as a food. The ornamental cabbage seed mixes have been hybridized to have purple and creamy white colors alongside beautiful rich hues of green. While you could eat ornamental cabbage, it has obviously been bred for looks and not taste. These beautiful plants deserve a special spot in the garden, and can be grown within flower groups, in rows, in clusters and in p0ts. They make a nice fall foundation planting, and plantings at the bases of potted trees. Stunning when grown with similarly-shaped and colored ornamental kales. You can use your imagination and grow borders and beds in several places in your food or ornamental plant gardens. Combine with dwarf, purple-color ornamental grasses and ivies in a design, in galvanized tubs, or in large hanging baskets.

-Ornamental Kale
, or salad savoy, comes in green, white, or purple, with growth forming a loose head. This variety is used in landscaping and is edible, with a mellower flavor and more tender leaves than curly kale, and way better tasting than the tasteless ornamental cabbage. It also comes in a variety of colors. The ornamental cabbages and kales make a stunning and colorful garden display all by themselves. 

-Kalettes - (Kale-ettes) "Flower Sprouts" 
Developed in Great Britain, where they are called "Flower Sprouts", this vegetable is a hybrid cross between Brussels sprouts and kale. They resemble miniature, ornamental kale rosettes with purple highlights on dark green. Leafy buds growing in the leaf axils along the stem – just like Brussels sprouts. Kalettes are the result of conventional breeding; both parents belong to the Brassica oleracea species, which also includes cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Kalettes have a texture like kale, with the nutty flavor of a sprout.

Design Idea: For an easy, tasty and ornamental garden bed design, add in a few perennial tall Italian purple globe artichokes and "kalette" plants in the centers of low growing cabbage and kale groupings as focal points, and you've got a purply winner of a stunning fall purple garden bed design. Check out this suggested planting.  Am I Right?

"Crayon Colors" are little beauties in primary colors. The 'Easter Egg' mix has pastel shades of pink and purple. You can even grow black radishes. Heirloom varieties of black radishes take more than twice as long to grow than regular radishes and are spicier, with a crisp black skin and white flesh. I prefer my radishes sweet and mild. I use them in colorful stir fries and salads. They look very pretty in little bunches on relish trays. Colorful radishes come in several sizes.

Heirloom Purple Globe Artichokes 
Did you know that artichokes are actually a fruit?
Artichokes ripen from August through and into frost. This plant is part of the thistle family. 
They grow large, spiky, purple flowers. Stake them among tall, ornamental flowers in purples, whites and pinks for a lot of garden "wow". Perfect if paired with pink Hardy Giant Hibiscus. 

Globe artichokes are perennial crops. They'll show up every year in your cornucopia garden. "Petite Mercury" and "Baby Anzio" are smaller varieties. Heirloom Purple Italian is an open-pollinated variety from Italy that produces large, purple-headed fruits. More tolerant to temperature extremes, Purple Italian Globes are more tender than the typical green varieties. Open pollinated means that vegetables are pollinated in the field by wind or natural pollinators to self- or cross-pollinate. Heirlooms are generally open pollinated plant varieties that are more 50 years old.

Adirondack Blue Potatoes 
Available in purple skin and flesh, Blue skin/ blue flesh, red skin/ red flesh, tan skin/ yellow flesh, red skin/ white flesh and in vivid bluish-purple hues. They taste like regular potatoes, and  they look stunning mashed.  There are many varieties of purple and blue potatoes, including some with a marbled blue and white interior, Red Cloud, Rose Gold and Purple Viking are a few colorful varieties to choose from. Grow in potato grow bags for easy care and harvesting. These look great in vintage pails and bushel baskets as garden decor. Awesome on your table if you use the colors in different bowls, or layered and displayed in glass baking dishes.

Sweet Potatoes and Yams
A traditional Thanksgiving feast side dish and pie. Tubers come in colors other than dark orange. Tan, rose, red, orange or blue skin sweet potatoes are available,, and the flesh comes in white, yellow, orange, cream or blue. All are highly nutritious. Display a few in the garden, as they are picked. They will keep well for a while in the outdoor chill.

"Rainbow Mix" or "Bright Lights" Swiss Chard
Also called silverbeet, swiss chard is a delicious green that comes in lots of colors. You can grow these stems in yellow, orange, pink, purple and maroon.

Leaf lettuces, Mesclun Mix, Romaines
Most lettuces can be sown in a two week succession, and you will have leaves to pick in fall.
Rogue d’Hiver is cold tolerant, and is a beautiful wine-colored lettuce. 
Freckled Romaine has burgundy dots on green leaves.

My favorites have always been Mesclun Mixes and buttercrunches, and I grow them for a weekly fall harvest. Spread seed every two weeks in late august for a weeks-long supply, cover with just a minimal amount of soil, pat down, water in. In a few weeks, you'll be plucking fresh lettuce leaves for your daily salad. I plant closely by scattering the tiny seeds in a raised garden bed, and I pick leaves once they're about 3 inches long. If you leave the root in the soil, you shall reap more leaves. 

Growing in an elevated raised bed keeps slugs and other disgusting things away from the lettuce, weeds aren't a problem, and it's easy to harvest and eat immediately. You can easily follow this same process indoors in rectangular windowsill planters. I am eating way more salads when I grow my own leafy greens. And they're what I call pre-cut salads. The leaves are just the right size.... I don't have to chop or rip up any heads, because I intentionally sow my salad lea lettuces closely and pick young leaves often. Leaves will keep growing after you trim leaves until a hard frost. Be sure to leave the roots when you pick.

Mini Winter Squash and Mini-Pumpkins
So many varieties and colors. Stop buying them every year from the supermarket. These are a great addition to your colorful autumn cornucopia garden. Grow these in the Native American Three Sisters way with Indian Corn and squash. It saves space and looks beautiful. You can also grow these over a pergola or arch. I wonder how a baby pumpkin pie would taste? I would prefer to use the minis, rather than cutting and cleaning out the giant pumpkins for my fresh pies and pumpkin bread. 

Park Seed offers a mix called "Mini Harvest Blend Pumpkin", shown below. Get mini pumpkin and other gourd seed mixes, and grow a patch, or grow them climbing on fences, railings, trellises and in bamboo teepee plant stakes with other pretty gourds. Edible and so darned cute as fall decorations. They will last for months in a basket when dried.

Grow and dry some long-neck gourd varieties to create pretty, painted, hanging birdhouses - I had several of these, and yes, the birds grew their families in them. I watched them do it from the day they mated and feathered their nest, until the fledglings left.

Mini Indian Corn -  Ornamental and Edible Types
There are 16 colors of corn to choose from. Corn is an essential part of a Three Sisters Garden Planting. Trellis or teepee these plants because they can reach 10 ft. We all love to decorate with Indian Corn. Ornamental "Glass Gem" Corn is edible, and it makes firm little morsels when popped. It can also be parched and ground into meal. It makes an awesome and colorful centerpiece as part of a cornucopia, or strung in bunches and hung on doors and archways. The colorful kernels look translucent, like glass. There is a sweet red corn available to gardeners. Flour-making types of corn come in  blue, green and orange. Use the dried stalks for autumn decor, tied to railings, teepee stakes or posts.

Pick from orange, purple, white, yellow. Tie some in bunches for garden decor.

Dwarf  Fall Colors Fruit Trees in Pots - Lots of fall color and bushels of fruit

Most dwarf non-hardy varieties can grow indoors as very pretty houseplants.
I grow dwarf Meyer lemon trees and Persian limes in big colorful planters all summer, and I bring them in and grow them indoors in our zone 6 winter, where they flower and fruit all the time. The fragrant and pretty flowers are constant. I put them back into the garden in their pots in spring.

Many potted dwarfs are beautiful within an in-ground garden design, as a focal point, in empty corners of the garden, decorating the two sides of arches and doorways, and of course, hanging on the patio with you.

The Owari Mandarin Tree is a beautiful dwarf patio tree that can handle brief temperature drops down to 12 to 15 degrees. They can be brought inside with their other dwarf tree friends for winter in the coldest regions. These are the hardiest dwarf orange, and look, taste and peel just like clementines. Many colorful dwarf trees love the controlled growth, ease of care, and the mobility that comes with living in pots.

Dwarf Meyer Lemon and Persian Limes are self-fertile and grow to about 4-6 ft. They can be pruned back after fruiting. These are not hardy, but make awesome winter houseguests. Meyer lemons are not as acidic, are sweeter, and are better lemons for cooking than your everyday grocery store type. Buy these trees at more mature sizes, like 2-4 ft. and you'll have full-size fruits in no time. Mine flowered constantly indoors and out, and fruited in their first year in pots as 2-3 ft. bare root trees planted indoors in winter and brought out in spring.

Don't limit yourself to these non-hardy types or just to citrus - there are many dwarf trees with colorful fall fruits or foliage that are cold hardy. I've started a dwarf fruit tree mini orchard, and grow fruit in several areas of my landscapes. I can't grow too many indoors in winter, but I can grow plenty of these little beauties in my front and backyard, as well as my patio. A great way to fill your cornucopias in fall. Lemons and limes take months to fully ripen, so if these become houseplants with fruits on them, there's your ornamental indoor decor bonus.

A beautiful ornamental plant and superfood. Beet varieties come in red, white, gold, and some have strips, burgundy, candy pink, and also red varieties with golden roots. ‘Bull’s Blood’ has bold and fiery red foliage.

Ornamental Shrubs, Trees and Plants - Fall Foliage, Fruits and Berries

Many edible fruits that we call berries,  aren’t, and others that we consider fruits or vegetables (like avocado), are berries.

Berry shrubs, trees and plants have great ornamental value, and many will present you with fruit in summer, and possibly in fall. Brightly-colored jars of preserves and holiday ornaments will be your winter bonus. 

Most berry plants and trees need a male and female to produce berries. There are a few varieties that are self-fertile. Be cautious when purchasing because not all nursery or home center folk know whereof they speak, and you might end up with same sex plants that produce no berries. Labeled varieties from growers are accurately sexed.

You can visit our Winter Gardens Design page to view more ornamental berry and 
colorful twig plants  like Winterberry, etc.,  that begin their show in fall, decorate your 
home for Thanksgiving, decorate your culinary presentations, and last all winter.

Choose types and varieties suitable for your planting zone - check the USDA Cold Hardiness Zone map for perennial plants. 
Non-hardy varieties for your zone have to be treated as annuals, or be brought indoors for winter.

Edibles - Black Currants, Boysenberries; Elderberries, Gooseberries, Huckleberries, Raspberries. cranberries (in time to preserve the Thanksgiving holiday condiment).

My Raspberries are everbearing, so I have lots producing in fall.
My dwarf black lace elderberries have stunning purple/black foliage all year, long-lasting pink blooms, and pretty purple/black berries in fall. This shrub in all varieties is beautiful year-round, and it looks especially stunning in Asian and Zen designs, paired with potted Dwarf Japanese Maples.

Blueberries - Grow dwarfs in pots - spectacular bright red fall leaves. Summer fruit for fall pies and preserves.

Quince is an autumn fruit. The quince plant is a large bush, as large as 10x10 ft. A ripe quince has a yellow skin with hints of green. Grow one as a focal point in the center of the garden in a large, ornamental pot. It can be pruned to a height and shape you like.

Berries - Ornamental Shrubs

I've grown these and they're gorgeous. Mine were pinks and lavenders. The birds had a fall and Thanksgiving feast, and these are beautiful woven into loose-design wreaths, garlands and candle rings.

Nandina "Firepower" (Heavenly Bamboo)
I grow these pretty little evergreen ornamentals in pots. Firepower is a dwarf variety of Nandina that can fit in anywhere. The leaves are reminiscent of bamboo, delicate and airy, and these are gorgeous all year, in shades of reds, yellows and orange. It grows nicely into a mounded shape and looks stunning as a small hedge, as well as in pots as accents throughout the garden. The berries are a very pretty and bright orange, hanging in nice clusters. It needs no pruning, unless you want to snip some longer ends off. Nandina is self-fertile. They deserve a spot in the autumn color garden and in Asian Garden Designs.

Ornamental - Bittersweet
Probably the most popular vine berries used by decorators and wreath-makers in fall and winter. Bittersweet is a strong, woody vine. Choose a native variety like C. scandens, because others can be quite invasive and stubborn. I grew 2 in very large pots with a small arch, poked an end into each p0ot as support, and kept it growing the way I wanted it to. These plants look stunning when planted in the giant-size black pots on either side of anything. Trust me, the colors will knock you over. 

Bittersweet's orange berries on dark green foliage is quite beautiful in Autumn. Grow on an arch or obelisk, pergola or tall trellises. But grow them in pots. They're very pretty growing over any ugly fence or cement wall, but you need to plant them in pots and not in the ground, or you will be very sorry when you have to prune, remove suckers, tie or control them some way. You'll need at least two to tango with these.... you'll need male and female plants to get berries. For all the trouble, these vines are gorgeous and we spend a lot of money buying decor that includes them. They're worth it, and the birds in the garden will be your friends forever.. A garland or wreath woven of Bittersweet, and evergreens, ivy or grapevines is a sight to see.

Ornamental - Ilex (Winterberry)- Ilex verticillata  
Gorgeous in the fall-winter garden and in arrangements. Read more about ornamental Winterberry here-->
Those leafless, berry-clustered stems you see florists and wreath-makers use are made from this. You will need a male and female plant for pollinating and creating those berries. Choose a dwarf cultivar like "Red Sprite" and others. Groupings  of 3-5 of these shrubs is breathtaking in the fall and winter landscape. Cut branches can be used for many decorative projects. Birds enjoy the berries, as well.

Ornamental - Spicebush
Spicebush is a native plant that grows gracefully along edges of woodlands and other part-shade areas with a beautiful color. Birds love the berries. Tight clusters of chartreuse blossoms in spring. The berries start to redden by late August in the Mid-Atlantic zone, and the leaves turn a bright yellow in fall. 
Spicebush requires a male/female to berry up. Edible as an ingredient in culinary creations, most often as dry rubs.

Ornamental - Viburnum 
Many varieties to choose from. 
American cranberry bush viburnum is a native shrub with reddish orange leaves. This plant is featured in the Autumn Decor Garden design on this page. Viburnum is a large shrub, and its berries come in different colors. ‘Brandywine' is my favorite. The leaves have a pink tinge, and the berries are a pink-purple. It's hard to find pretty purply-pinks in fall landscapes. Viburnum is self-fertile, so you can plant only one and get beautiful berries..

Now that I've filled your head with a lot of ideas, you can get planting in spring, in time for this Autumn Cornucopia Garden to grow and take your breath away. You can order the veggie seeds during the dreary winter, and begin little seedlings on windowsills or under grow lights, to be placed in the garden when the threat of frost is past. 

Purchase quart or gallon sizes of ornamental shrubs and trees, or 3-4 ft. sizes of dwarf trees in spring to avoid having to baby infant plants, and to allow them a good head start for fall blooming and berry production. Plant pollinator plants around the garden to attract and entice them into pollinating your fruit and berry plants and trees. Especially the plants that are not self-fertile. It won't hurt to plant some pretty Agastache (hummingbird mint). It comes in yellow and orange fall colors and blooms a long time, so it will look great in the Autumn garden. It won't hurt to feed and view the hummingbirds that visit it, and the garden all summer. Besides, the mint or licorice scent and flavor of the Agastache leaves can be harvested and dried for culinary purposes.
