Top Five Fall Flowers for Your
Fall flowers, colorful and hardy, look beautiful in your garden or make beautiful fall arrangements. Here’s a peek at some of our favorite fall blooming plants for your landscaping.
Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily) is one of the most loved and beautiful flowers to give and receive. All they need is a little care. Peruvian Lilies love sunshine, so plant them in a sunny spot with well-draining soil. Protect them from strong winds and add organic matter to the soil before planting.
If you’re growing them in pots, use peat-free soil-based potting compost. Here’s more info on how to care for Alstroemeria.
The Butterfly Bush has fluffy lavender-colored blossoms. They attract, you guessed it, butterflies! Monarchs especially love these easy-to-grow flowers. So as they make their way south, it will draw them for you to enjoy.
Butterfly Bushes are hardy and not easily susceptible to plagues or disease. So even if you have a “black thumb,” you can manage them easily. Plant them in a sunny spot and watch them blossom! Here’s more info on how to care for a Butterfly Bush.
Coneflowers are popular perennials with good reason. They are easy to care for and add a wonderful splash of color to your landscaping design.
Instead of the coneflower petal stretching skyward, they slant downwards, allowing the cone of the flower to take center stage. They come in various colors, including pink, white, and gold.
Coneflowers are very tolerant of poor soil conditions and heat and drought-resistant.
Caring for coneflowers is easy. They prefer full sun and well-draining soil.
Gerbera Daisies are one of the prettiest fall flowers and bloom for months. They are known for their bright, cheerful blooms and come in various shapes and colors.
You can grow these fall flowers from seeds, seedlings, or division. They thrive in full sun and sandy soil. Gerbera Daisies are susceptible to fungal disease, so correctly watering is essential to caring for Gerbera Daisies.
Liatris (aka blazing start or gayfeather) is an interestingly shaped plant. Instead of one large flower head, it has several smaller, string-like blooms surrounding elongated sections of the plant.
These Autumn bloomers add color to any garden and are easy to grow and care for, especially for beginners, drought-tolerant, and attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.
