Fall can be one of the most colorful times of year in your garden. Show some fall style in your yard with these plants that display stunning autumn color.
Heuchera (Coral Bells) – exciting colors in compact, clumping plants. Recent work in hybridizing heuchera has left us with an impressive range of jaw dropping varieties. Plant in full sun to part shade.
Ornamental Grasses – so much variety in color, size and appearance make grasses a must in both landscaping and fall containers. Typically best in full sun to part shade.
Pansies – vibrant colors that will bloom in the fall and again in the spring. As an added benefit, they will often re-seed themselves. Plant in full sun and water well.
Chrysanthemums – another bright blooming classic can give you fall color year after year. Mums generally grow into a 3′ round bush that bursts with color in the fall. They’ll show their best in full sun.
