AVAILABLE LATE MAY. Pumpkin on a stick is such a fun stem to cut to use in autumn arrangements. This member of the tomato family can be eaten (it’s used in some Asian cuisines), but is mostly grown for the orange-red orbs that could pass as mini pumpkins on 2-3′ stalks. Branches keep well fboth resh or dried. Perennial in only very warm climates, you could save the seed if it’s too much trouble to winter over roots indoors.
Hardiness zones: 9-11
