I don't particularly like the taste or texture of Okra (I might get run out of my hometown for saying so), but look at this stunning bloom 😍 ! I would plant it just for the ornamental and pollinator value.

Heath Aster is a native perennial that has a full set of beautiful little flowers. I just discovered it at the community garden and am considering how it might be a great groundcover addition for us here at home.

@tickfoot Interesting you say that about the taste and texture. This dish{link} from South India is probably the only one that made me think otherwise.
