07 Oct 4 Fall Flowers to Plant This Year
The golden leaves are on the tress, the air is crisp and cool, people are hanging their cozy décor….fall is finally here. While fall is a favorite season of many, gardeners sometimes lament the colder weather rolling in, as it means less planting. But, just because fall is coming, doesn’t mean you have to put away the gardening gear. There are plenty of plants that do really well during autumn, including beautiful fall flowers. Fall is now the second biggest decorating holiday of the year, after Christmas. So spruce up your home and yard with some lovely fall-colored blooms!
Here are 4 of our favorite fall flowers to plant in your garden this season:
1. Mums (Chrysanthemums)
Mums are a classic fall flower and come in a variety of colors-rust, oranges, yellows, and red. They are lovely placed in pots next to the front door welcoming guest, or planted throughout your landscaping.
2. Black-eyed Susans (Fall Rudbeckia)
These radiant yellow flowers will brighten those darkening fall days. There are both perennial and annual varieties of them, but the annual variety will not come back in the spring.
3. Montauk Daisies
Who doesn’t love daisies? These perennial beauties bloom late summer to early fall and will come back year after year. They produce beautiful large white flowers, which contrasts nicely with other bright fall hues.
Fall wouldn’t be fall without the cheery yellow flowers of goldenrod. It’s a beautiful plant that looks good despite summer heat and drought. Note: Goldenrod isn’t typically a source of allergies; this is a common misperception.
So these wonderful options are proof that there are plenty of flowers to satisfy your garden cravings throughout the season.
Fall decorating is fun and it’s easy to add some festive flair with potted plants or fall-themed landscapes. Head to your garden center to see what is in stock for the season. Happy fall and happy planting!
