Okra is a beautiful plant with big leaves that is good both as an edible and ornamental. It can easily fit into a front yard landscape among ornamental plants.
It is a tall plant, usually grows 4-6 feet tall depending on variety. Therefore if grown in a mixed plant bed it would be good at the back of the bed or in a corner/end of the bed.
It takes the desert heat quite well.
It has a sturdy stem and usually does not need support in the windy weather.
