20 Glorious Plants for an Edible Front Yard

#11 Chrysanthemums

Not only give beautiful flowers, but also they’re surprisingly both edible, and tasty. The young, tender leaves taste a bit like rapini like a milder form of mustard mixed with collards.

#12 Rosemary

This hardy evergreen herb can be trimmed into all kinds of fancy shapes in your entryway.

#13 Cardoons

These artichoke cousins are just as scrumptious, and possibly even prettier than their spiky, more well-known counterparts. You can harvest the ripe cardoon flower heads and prepare them the same you would artichokes.

#14 Scarlet or Peach Runner Beans

These runners are ideal for any edible front yard garden. They give the bright red (or peachy) flowers to liven up your yard and produce green pods, or ripe, juicy beans for delicious dishes.

#15 Roses

Young, fragrant rose petals for jelly, rosewater, and candied desserts. When autumn rolls around, harvest the rose hips for jam, nightshade-free ketchup, tea, medicinal preparations, homemade cosmetics, and more.

#16 Passionflower

Passionflower is one of the best medicinal plant allies and you can also harvest the leaves to use as medicine. It can be used as a tea or tincture to treat anxiety, insomnia, menstrual cramps, and much more.

#17 Mint

Mint has many uses! Chop the leaves and add them into fresh salads or tabbouleh. Or steep the leaves in hot water for a refreshing tea. Whether you’re using it in a savory dish, a dessert, a drink, or as a garnish, mint is a great ingredient.

#18 Chives

These tasty alliums are essential culinary herbs, but they also create really pretty pink-purple flowers to the landscape. Those chive blossoms are fiery, delicious additions to omelets, soups, salads, and pickled goods. And, you also can snip the greens and use them as you would spring onions.

#19 Chicory

Look at it as a weed but it’s a versatile perennial flower that’s both pretty, and very useful. When roasted, its roots take on a caramel-like flavor, perfect for adding to beverages or used as a coffee substitute.

#20 Kale

There are some kales and cabbages that are strictly grown for decorative purposes! It’s tasty, it’s good for you, and it’s pretty enough to use as an ornamental.
