Fruits as Ornamentals

by Marvin Pritts

One can see many beautiful gardens and landscapes traveling around the countryside, but usually absent from the landscape are the plants that bear edible fruits. Such plants, if present, are usually segregated to the back of the property, unappreciated for their ornamental qualities and potential contribution to the landscape - not to mention their role in creating wildlife habitat or providing a healthy snack for people.

This presentation was part of the Longwood Gardens Graduate Symposium held on March 17, 2000.

For information about growing many of these 'edible ornamentals,' see our Minor Fruits website.
