Although summer annuals are winding down, perennials are looking fabulous and can be planted throughout the month of August & September. The soil is warm from the summer sun and this will help them to become established quickly before cooler weather sets in. Right now the late-season bloomers are full of bright summertime color. Think about Echinacea Prairie Cone Flower, Rudbeckia Brown-Eyed Susan, Gaillardia Blanket Flower, Aster Daisy, Agastache Hyssop and Hibiscus as additions to your garden to help keep it looking colorful all season long! Take a stroll down the Perennial Path in Creek Side’s Gardens Backyard for inspiration.
Garden Mums – just beginning to bloom now to offer extended color for your porch and patio. Choose from a selection of colors and sizes.
Rudbeckia – Brown-Eyed or Black-Eyed Susans really show off the fall colors and will brighten up any area around your home.
Flowering Kale – a wonderful accent plant to show off the brighter fall colors and will hold up right until the very end of the season.
Pansies – Nothing is as bright and cherry as a flower pot of pansies in the fall. They love the cool weather and will keep blooming all season long.
Mix these plants together to create an awesome fall combo planter. Come on in, we’ll show you how!
