As the leaves change and the crisp air comes rolling in, now is the time to think about adding some seasonal beauty to your garden. Fall is a wonderful time to plant flowers that can thrive in the cooler temperatures and add vibrant colors to your outdoor space. In honor of the fall season, this month at Sunny Valley Farms, we’re talking about our top five favorite flowers to include in your garden this autumn!
Chrysanthemums, commonly known as mums, are the perfect flowers for fall. They come in a wide range of colors, including yellow, red, orange, and purple, making them perfect for adding vibrant hues to your garden. Mums are known for their resilience to cooler temperatures and can withstand light frosts. Plant them in well-drained soil and place them in an area with plenty of sunlight for best results. They’ll bloom profusely throughout the fall, adding a burst of color to your landscape!
Pansies are charming, cool-season flowers that thrive in the fall. These delicate-looking blooms are incredibly hardy, with the ability to withstand chilly nights and light frosts. Pansies come in a variety of colors, from deep purples and blues to bright yellows and oranges. Plant them in containers, hanging baskets, or directly in your garden beds to enjoy their cheerful faces throughout the season.
Asters are late-season bloomers that are perfect for extending the beauty of your garden into the fall. With daisy-like flowers in shades of purple, pink, and white, asters are not only visually appealing but also attract pollinators like butterflies and bees. These hardy perennials prefer well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight. Consider planting them as a backdrop to other fall flowers for a stunning display.
Sedums, also known as stonecrops, are succulent plants that shine in the fall. Their fleshy leaves and clusters of tiny flowers add texture and interest to your garden. Sedums come in various varieties, including “Autumn Joy” with its striking pink blooms. These drought-tolerant plants are perfect for low-maintenance gardening and can endure the cooler temperatures of fall while retaining their beauty.
Coral Bells (Heuchera)
Coral Bells, with their colorful foliage and delicate bell-shaped flowers, are a charming addition to any fall garden. They offer a unique combination of visual interest through their leaves and blooms. Coral Bells come in various colors, from rich burgundies to deep greens, making them a versatile choice for landscaping. These perennials thrive in partial shade and well-drained soil, making them suitable for a range of garden conditions!
