Update your Yard for Fall colors

Dig in and start exploring beautiful and colorful flowering plants to add to your yard this autumn. Autumn is the perfect time to plant many different items, including grass, trees, tulips and daffodils. The season’s lower temps help plants to transition easier from pots to planting beds, and it’s also a welcome respite from summer heat for gardeners. Pests and disease problems typically dwindle in fall, and in many regions, seasonal rains help give plants a solid start. What should you be planting in fall?

Some plants that bloom in the autumn are perennials, so they’ll return every year giving you reliability and value! Just make sure that the perennials you choose will withstand winters in your area. Also, pay attention to your plant’s watering needs: Some of those hot, dry days of fall can be hard on plants.

Now, here are our six favorite fall plants and flowers for autumn color.

Asters are late bloomers, and they also attract tons of pollinators so you’ll enjoy the flowers and their visitors.

There are many types of sedums, but this variety Sedum Autumn Joy 

is known for its upright form and bright pink flowers in late summer and early fall. The blooms on this perennial last for weeks, and pollinators love them!

Sunflowers range in size from a few feet to more than 10 feet tall! Plant the seeds in spring for late summer and fall color. And yes, some types have edible seeds you can eat or share with the birds!

Aronia  bush gets an incredible autumn color that makes it a stunning foundation planting or accent in your landscape. Aronia also boasts spring flowers.

Chrysanthemums, or mums for short, come in every color of the rainbow! They’re technically perennials, which means they will come back every fall to brighten your yard.

Who knew cabbage and kale could be so pretty? These ornamental types add flash to your autumn garden. They’re annuals but will stay “in bloom” for months until a hard freeze.

So the next time you are looking to add a little color to your yard for the fall, try adding from the list of plants above.
