Fall Perennial Garden – Landscape for Fall Color
Mums are the traditional fall flower – but don’t stop there. You can find plenty of plants to add to your landscape’s fall display.
Shrubs and trees, like redbud, Kentucky coffeetree, sugar and red maples, serviceberry, chokeberry, fothergilla and common witchhazel add color, complementing the surrounding perennials and fading annuals. Cold tolerant pansies and ornamental cabbage and kale can add a fresh splash of color. Plus, the pansies provide nectar for late season butterflies.
Some perennials like calamint continue to bloom into the fall while the Japanese anemone and toad lilies start their floral display as temperatures cool. Combine them with dwarf conifers, shrubs and annuals with complementary colors and texture.
And don’t forget about the fall color on perennials.
A bit more information: Take a walk through your fall gardens to find the often-overlooked colorful fall foliage of perennials. Balloon flower and Hosta provide a beautiful yellow. Two row stonecrop is a magnificent orange while Siberian iris’ fall leaves are tinted orange. And the purples and reds of perennial geraniums, Bergenia and Epimedium, provide a colorful display at ground level. Make note and add a few of these to your garden.
