Lavender Lavender has one of the sweetest scents out there for a flower, but that sweet-smelling aroma can also translate into taste. This flower works great on many desserts, including chocolate cake and peach crisp. In addition, a lavender flower is a great addition to many cocktails, providing a sweet aftertaste and perfume. Borage This star-shaped flower looks like it would give any room a splash of color, but it is also a pretty tasty flower. Tasting just like cucumbers, they are a great way to brighten up a salad, a glass of lemonade, or a cocktail, such as a gin and tonic. Hibiscus Okay, now the hibiscus is a more commonly known flower, thanks to its presence in many teas. Tasting like cranberry, a few petals would work great in a glass of champagne, and your guests will be amazed at the artisan spin you put on the traditional celebratory drink. Pansies A staple of summertime, the pansy could be a great addition to an early fall salad. With a taste slightly resembling that of mint, it is a refreshing way to lighten up a summer-inspired salad, or a sweet-tasting cocktail. Just drop the whole blossom in there, and see your guests look at it in awe. Rose Rose petals are a staple of romance worldwide, but they work wonders in food.
