It is autumn already and time to decorate your garden with the fall flowers. So, make sure to make a corner in your garden only for the flowers which you are going to plant in the fall garden.
So, without wasting time and let’s start with teaching you with my opinions for what flowers to plant in the fall.
|Feels like cotton balls|
You can plant marigolds in the fall. As these are the hardy plants, they can tolerate cool nights and also even withstand a light frost. They bloom continuously until a hard freeze.
2. False Sunflower:
This sunflower variety so-called heliopsis is also in the list of the plants which you can plant in the fall. They have yellow petals with brown centres. Do you know what is special with these? They are perennial mean that they can live for several years.
Several varieties will keep growing healthy and flowering from mid-summer to fall. Orange and red-tinted varieties are good for fall planting.
4. Ornamental Peppers:
Now, don’t say that I am telling you to plant fall vegetables in your autumn garden. For those who don’t what is this? Let me tell them that these chillies are used as a showpiece. They come in different colours even some varieties bear multi-colour chillies. Point to be noted, Never try to eat it. They are super spicy.
5. Balloon Flower:
|Wow! Seems like someone blow the bud.|
Do you know why their name is balloon flowers? Because they look like a hot air balloon before turning into a full flower. These beautiful flowers come in different shades which are blue, white and pink. Meanwhile, they do best in the sun-light but can be grown in the partial shade.
|Look at those little tiny tiny cuties.|
Cornflowers also called bachelor’s button or basket flower comes commonly in blue. You are going like these flowers as much as the birds and the butterflies do. Plant these in the fall garden as well.
7. Sweet Alyssum:
|Ah……. to many flowers. Just the balls of the flower.|
Sweet Alyssum has a dainty pink or white flower which looks gorgeous. Do you know what is special about them? They are hardy and can tolerate a few light touches of frost. That means you can plant these in the fall for a long period.
|My favourite flowers!|
Pansies are one of my favourite flowers as their design consists of different colours which really look amazing. They can’t tolerate heat, but they can withstand the winter. You can plant them in the fall garden at the end of the summer and they will glorify your garden for sure.
Gomphrena is also known as globe amaranth is not only a flower but also an edible flower. They come in magenta, purple, red, orange, white, pink and lilac shades. They can be grown in summer and in early fall as they are very heat-tolerant and fairly drought resistant. They grow best in the full sun and regular moisture.
So, that is for now folks! See ya!
