(Okra)

Mature plants become quite tall and have a sturdy upright habit. They have big, spiny, palmate, dark green leaves and produce pretty creamy yellow hollyhock-like flowers with burgundy centers. When these heat-loving plants are mature and...

(Sunset Hibiscus)

Sunset hibiscus, is both an edible and ornamental plant that is native to eastern Asia. Like okra, its pods are used to thicken stews and vegetable dishes and can be ornamental when dried. The primary ornamental value of these tall plants come from their large showy yellow hibiscus-like flowers and bold glossy dark green leaves. Provide them with full sun and well-drained soil. Be sure to remove mature seed pods in the fall because these tender perennials tend to self sow. Plant in vegetable gardens...

Kiwi are dioecious, which means individual plants have either female flowers or male flowers. So, it is necessary to have at least two vines, one female and one male, for cross-pollination and fruiting.

For high productivity, plant these in locations with...
