Edible landscaping suggestions for upstate SC

scslimMay 27, 2009

I am new to this forum and also new to gardening. I have a small house in the upstate of SC which has a small "flower bed" wrapping around the front of the house. The bed faces the NE and currently has numerous small shrubs. Over the past year, I have removed some of the shrubbery and have begun replacing them with edible yet somewhat ornamental varieties.

I currently have seven "Sunshine Blue" blueberries and two tea (Camellia sinensis) plants. I was looking for suggestions for another 10-15 edible plants that would look decent in front of the house. Most of the plants would need to be in the 3-6 ft range, although there are spaces where taller plants could fit.

Some of the options I had though about are:

some type of bush cherry

Goji berry

pineapple guava

northstar dwarf cherry

If anyone had any ideas for some suitable plants, I would appreciate the input.

Serviceberries are delightful small trees, and the fruits are ripening now, great fresh!!

There are some dwarf peach cultivars, 'NC State Dwarf Red' is one that makes a nice rounded tree of 5'x 5'.

Perhaps some muscadine grapes or a hybrid plum cultivar?

Edible landscaping list some smaller forms of Kaki persimmon that might work. Some have nice fall color as an added bonus.
