Fall Flower Guide

Fall flowers are a great way to keep your yard looking great throughout autumn. Be it a planter or an entire garden, there are tons of options to enhance the color outside of your home. Use the reds, yellows, and oranges of the leaves as a basis for your color scheme. Unconventional planters can be a great addition too! Below are some suggestions of what to plant in the fall:

Mums are a great addition to your garden and come in a variety of rich autumn hues. Be sure to buy a plant that is budded but not in full bloom making it so that blooms last longer once they open. Mums do best in well-drained soil and in an area that receives at least six hours of sun.

True to its name, Goldenrod is bright yellow and a great addition to any yard. They enjoy full sun and well-drained soil.
