Take advantage of the peak of their beauty during the fall, while the weather is still mild enough to stroll through the garden.
Japanese anemones are indispensable plants
for fall gardens. The Pamina cultivar, with its beautiful semi-double pink lavender flowers and yellow heart, is a fantastic choice. The exceptionally compact fall sedums are also a great choice for the fall, as is the Carl variety with its grey-tinted leaves and gorgeous pink-red flowers.
Echinacea is also well-known for its long flowering period that tends to brighten gardens
from the middle of the summer to the fall with its long, flower-topped stems that can range from pink and orange to yellow or purple. Consider also that certain strains of wilted flowers will remain highly decorative
and may survive until the first snowfall (and sometimes even longer); the flower of the Chinese silver grass (Miscanthus sinensis) is one example.
When purchasing a tree or bush, take into consideration the fact that their fruit-bearing period can last part of the fall and even into the winter in some cases. The fruit from rowan, ornamental apple trees or viburnum are simply a sight to behold in the fall!
A layout of potted plants can brighten even the grayest fall day or bring life to a sunny one. A few plants have a flowering period that occurs late in the summer and often resists to the first chilly period, making them perfect to create a miniature fall garden.
Use fruit from your garden to garnish your potted flowers or to add colour
to the terrace or stairs of your home. By utilising the vivid colours of chrysanthemums and fall asters (both of whom grow easily in pots), you can bring back some of those summer feelings
. Cucurbita maxima, Cucurbita moschata and Cucurbita pepo are but a few varieties of winter squash that can produce very original-looking fruit!
In short, it is possible to have a flowery transition garden from fall to winter; all you need is to select the right flowers
! Happy transition!
