Fall Flowers

Autumn gardens can be just as vibrant and colorful as those in spring and summer, with a range of flowers that bloom in the fall. These autumn bloomers bring warmth and color to gardens as the days get shorter and cooler. They range from late bloomers that continue the summer show into fall, to those that specifically start their display as the days begin to cool.

Chrysanthemums, often simply called mums, are one of the most popular autumn flowers. Available in a wide array of colors, including yellows, oranges, reds, and purples, they are a staple of fall garden displays and container plantings. Mums begin blooming in late summer and continue into the fall, offering a long-lasting burst of color.

Asters are another fall favorite, blooming in late summer to late fall. These perennials are known for their daisy-like flowers in shades of purple, blue, pink, and white. They attract butterflies and are a great way to add a pop of color to the autumn garden.

For yellow fall flowers, consider Goldenrods (Solidago). Contrary to popular belief, they are not a significant cause of allergies and are a fantastic way to add bright yellow tones to the fall landscape. They bloom in late summer to fall and are known for their tall, spiky appearance.

Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ is an excellent choice for late-season blooms. Its flowers start out pink in late summer and gradually turn to a rich, bronzy red in the fall. This hardy perennial is drought-tolerant and easy to care for.

Toad Lily (Tricyrtis) is a unique choice for fall flowers, especially for shaded gardens. They bloom in late summer to fall with exotic, orchid-like flowers in shades of purple, pink, and white, often with intricate spots.

Japanese Anemone is a graceful fall bloomer, with delicate flowers on tall, wiry stems. They typically bloom in white or pink and are a beautiful addition to the back of a border or a woodland garden.

For October flowers, consider Witch Hazel (Hamamelis). This large shrub or small tree produces spidery, fragrant flowers in shades of yellow, orange, or red in late fall to early winter. It’s a striking choice for adding late-season interest to the garden.

In September, many summer perennials continue blooming into the early fall. Plants like Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), Coneflowers (Echinacea), and late-blooming daylilies can still be in flower. Ornamental grasses also come into their own in autumn, providing texture and movement in the garden.

In summary, autumn flowers offer a wide range of colors and forms, extending the garden’s interest well into the cooler months. From the bold colors of chrysanthemums and asters to the unique blooms of toad lilies and Japanese anemones, these plants ensure that the garden remains lively and colorful through the fall. With the right selection, an autumn garden can be a spectacular display of nature’s beauty as the season changes.
