I admit, some of my annuals are starting to look a little sad right now. Once I get out the fall decorations, I like to change my some of my flowers too so everything blends properly with all the orange, gold and brown tones. I love when my flower colors coordinate.
Don’t be fooled, fall is a wonderful time for planting. Yes, the days are shorter and the nights cooler but there are several flowers that like the cooler temperatures and tolerate the seasonal changes that occur in autumn. Halloween / fall is now the second biggest decorating holiday of the year next to Christmas. So go ahead, spruce up those gardens and celebrate the beautiful autumn season nature has to offer.

Flowering Cabbage-
Just as the name suggests, these plants look like a colorful cabbage. While there is really no “flower” to the flowering cabbage, these colorful plants are frost resistant and very long-lasting. They are the longest lasting of the fall flowers, usually until Thanksgiving and sometimes even longer depending on your climate zone.
