For another edible flower in your garden, consider planting Rose of Sharon.

It is a long time garden favorite of my mother and mine.

Hibiscus syriacus (Latin) is a medium to large-sized shrub or small tree that produces masses of single or double flowering blooms in a variety of colors; white, pink, red, purple and blue.

Blossoms appear in late Summer and have a nutty flavor to them.

Pick the flower buds in the morning and put them in the refrigerator.

They will open when you take them out later to use.

I am building my homestead food forest and ornamental garden with Fast Growing Trees, so visit them for the best fruit trees, etc.!
