Fall flowers are just as beautiful as spring flowers and summer flowers. Autumn begins with many summer flowers that are still in bloom.

Sunflowers begin to grow in late August to early September, and can last until falls first frost.

Some flowers that begin blooming in summer are actually considered to be autumn flowers. This is because they live longer in a fall garden.

While these end of summer flowers are bright and gorgeous to look at, fall has plenty of flowers that are just as beautiful.

What Flowers Grow Well in the Fall

Fall is a time to see Japanese Anemones, Autumn Crocus, Michaelmas Daisy, and Chrysanthemums. I always know fall is near when I see flats of chrysanthemums for sale at the local garden store.

Colors of Fall Flowers

Flowers during this time of the year are known for vibrant earth tone colors such as

  • Mauves

  • Yellows
  • Rust Colors

Surely you can find your favorite flower in a wonderful bold fall color!

With so many colors to choose from, be sure to pick good color combinations for a well-rounded garden. Some colors will clash together, so it might be best to pick fresh flowers with complimentary colors.

Besides having the bold flowers to bloom in fall, we also look forward to fall trees. With all of the brightly colored leaves, the trees look beautiful. There is nothing like taking a nice fall walk and enjoying all that nature during the autumn has to offer.

Can You Plant Flowers in the Fall

Yes! gardening in the fall is nice because you can enjoy the break from the hot humid summer but before the frigid winter. With the cooler weather coming, gardeners can spend a lot of time in their gardens.

Many autumn flowers do best in the weather fall brings. Two kinds of flowers that thrive off of the cooler weather are Chrysanthemum and Goldenrod. The shortened, cooler days really helps them to bloom.

When Should I Plant Spring Bulbs

Fall is the perfect time to start thinking about spring. If you live in a colder climate you can begin to plant spring bulbs (also known as hardy bulbs) in early fall around September to October, before the first frost.

If you live in a warmer climate you may want to hold off on planting bulbs until at least November or December. If you plant bulbs while the weather is still on the warmer side some spring flowers could begin to bloom if they are planted too early.

It’s best to wait until the average nighttime temperature is around 40 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Spring Bulbs List

Whatever climate you live in make sure you plant the bulbs before the first frost in order to give them time to go through their chilling period, get established and begin to take root. This will allow them to bloom when spring arrives.
