The hot hues of your spring and summer plants may start to disappear when the hot weather does, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo the joy of a beautiful garden. There are plenty of plants that can withstand colder temperatures, meaning that even as autumn hits you still will be able to have all the appeal of flowers without worrying about how long they will last.
Ornamental grasses are must-haves not only for the fall, but year round. They are super low maintenance and keep their color no matter what the thermometer says. Plant them to accent a garden, or arrange different varieties together as a centerpiece of its own.
What flowers work well in the fall? Mums are a great choice, and not only are they tough in the face of a little frost, but they also come in a variety of autumn colors, meaning that they will be a good aesthetic match for the season. Look for other hardy blooms, like some pansy varieties. Bergenias and other colorful leaved plants, such as New Zealand flax, can also add extra depth to a fall landscape.
What’s the most important key to maintaining plants in cooler weather? Make sure that they get watered regularly before the ground and soil begins to freeze solid. You should also be sure to remove fallen leaves from your garden, as they could block your plants from getting adequate sunlight. Keep things tidy and well cared for, and your garden should last you into the cooler months!
