I love the multi-tasking capability of edible ornamentals! Alpine strawberries provide tasty garden snacks for both me, birds and all kind of animals what trespassing my property.
Their emerald green foliage and white flowers make an attractive, tidy edging along side walkway and you may also use them as "shoes & socks" plants to hide the less attractive bases of lilies and phlox. Especially if your space is limited, you'll appreciate plants that do triple duty by providing pretty leaves, beautiful bloom, adorable berries to admire and the source of inspiration.
And don’t forget about medicinal properties of leaves and berries!
