It’s not too soon to talk about fall, is it? If you’re a gardener you know you have to think ahead when planning your gardens. For my fall gardens, I usually just add a few mums outside and that’s it but I’d really like to incorporate some perennials into the mix for a seasonal display. I know mums are a perennial but I usually kill mine. I think it’s because my front yard is a shade garden and mums like full sun.
So while I’m thinking and planning let’s look at some fresh ways to add fall color into your gardens and get inspired together.
This cabbage and ornamental kale displayed in window boxes is a stunner!
Add fall colors to your garden for an autumn glow.
Short on space? Make a fall container garden.
Another plant that adds fall color to the garden is called Croton.
Try filling a wheelbarrel full of mums and pumpkins.
Take the garden harvests and arrange them at your entry way.
I love how these flowers spill over onto the sidewalk! Black Eyed Susans make a great late summer/early fall addition to your garden.
I also love this creative idea of growing sunflowers in an obelisk.
This beautiful fall front yard display looks so neat.
Make a big impact with a fall garden planted in a whiskey barrel. I can’t even tell you how much I love this!
I just discovered this plant called Fothergilla, look at the beautiful fall color on this one!
From what I read, Fothergilla does well in sun or part shade, so I think this will be my first step for my own fall gardens. Do you have any other recommendations for fall plants that do well in the shade? If so, please leave a comment and let me know!
