As the name states, microgreens are small. They are usually less than 1.5 inches tall and .5 to 1 inch wide across the top. Radish, kale, beet, arugula, chia, celery, broccoli, cucumber, wasabi, and certain lettuces are all microgreens. Other edible flowers that we may forget are flowers include broccoli, cauliflower, artichokes, capers, and squash blossoms. During the Victorian era, candied violets were quite popular and some companies still make them today.
There are varieties of edible flowers that have a wide range of colors and flavors. The process of choosing edible flowers for an event is both a creative and somewhat scientific one that you can really have a lot of fun with. The best way to work with a talented person who excels in the pairing of edible flowers is to tell them a little bit about what you are looking for. From there you may tell them that you would like the edible flowers to be comprised of the colors purple and orange to coordinate with colors in the event, such as table centerpieces. This does not mean matching exactly as this can prove tacky, but rather nicely and tastefully complimenting.
