Add Some Colour to Your Fall Garden With These Plants
Is your garden looking a little drab right now? Add some colour to your borders with these fall blooming perennials and plants
Fall doesn't have to mean the end of the blooming season. These stunners will keep your garden interesting all through the season.
Sedums are definitely one of the stars of the autumn garden. Look for unusual varieties like Autumn Charm or Autumn Fire to add to your collection of Autumn Joy sedums. There are also variegated varieties that add interest all year long.
No, this is not a spring flowering crocus. It's colchicum aka autumn crocus. Blooming from bulbs planted in July, you'll have lots of crocus like flowers right through the fall.
Joe Pye weed is one of those native plants that works so well in a perennial border. At 5' high, it's a statement plant. But well worth giving up real estate for these showy blooms atop dark red stems.
Asters (or Michaelmas daisies) look like purple and yellow shasta daisies. But they bloom in the fall, providing a profusion of purple, yellow, white or pink to your garden.
And don't forget vines - this clematis "Sweet Autumn" is just budding up now in my garden. It covers a fence separating the driveway from the patio with it's profusion of tiny white flowers - beautifully scented as well.
