For example, the Desert King Fig is hardy to 5 degrees F and can be grown in a container or in the ground. As well as being a unique addition to your yard with it’s exotic-looking leaf structure, it produces a medium-sized fig and a mature plant can yield 10-15 lbs in a season.
Another unique plant is the Honeyberry (Lonicera caerulea var. edulis). Hardy to minus 40F, the Honeyberry produces a berry that is delicious and higher in antioxidants than blueberries. 1/2 day to full sun and 2 varieties that bloom at a similar time are necessary for cross-pollination. Some varieties will reach only 2-3 feet in height and produce 5-10 lbs of berries per plant. They are also disease and pest resistant.
Love blueberries but are renting your house or only have a small space for a container garden? The Top Hat Blueberry is an excellent choice for container gardens. Attractive and compact, it will grow to around 2 feet in height and produce a prolific amount of pea-sized blueberries. In the fall, the leaves will turn a fiery red or orange color before falling off. Can also be grown as a bonsai plant!
Here’s a picture of my back porch container garden. The Top Hat Blueberry is on the right. Also pictured are two columnar apple trees and a Peach Sorbet Blueberry.
