There are so many flowering shrubs with delicious edible crops that are beautiful specimens of the landscape that it can be more confusing to shop for edible landscape shrubs. We’ve selected a couple of our favourites in an attempt to make the decision-making task simpler. These shrubs are used for shearing and pruning; they have beautiful flowering, shape and colour of foliage, colour of fall, and common edible crops.Learn more about us at Landscaping Colorado Springs
Blueberries are edible landscape plants that are simply wonderful. They are not as hard to develop as many seem to believe. In shape and colour and fruiting, there are several cultivars that differ. Blueberries come in many flavours, from extremely tiny and compact mounded forms to large and sprawling and tall forms. Add some peat into each initial planting hole and all the pH change they need, nothing complicated, is mulch with compost or pine needles. Both of them bear cute and sweetly scented pink and white spring flowers. In a pleasant pleasing green, they all have appealing bushy foliage, often red or pink new growth. In the summer, they all bear delicious blue or pink berries. And in fall, they all glow brilliantly bright. They are super hardy, and in most climates, including the coldest places, they do well.
As a very strong and powerful natural remedy, elderberry has come to the fore. It also happens to be a lovely plant that fits the landscape well. There are also cultivars available with purple foliage, making them a striking addition to the landscape (especially when planting foliage in other plants between chartreuse colours). The shape of the leaf is lovely and unique. The flowers are extremely fragrant for pollinators and very attractive. Jams and jellies and juices are quickly produced from the berries. While often viewed as a broad perennial, in one season they can achieve shrub like proportions and they need plenty of room to spread out. They are super simple to grow, and you do your local ecology a favour as a native plant by using elderberry in your landscape. To guarantee a good fruit collection, you will need to plant more than one elderberry.
