Beautiful autumn flowers are some of the most attractive flowers for flower garden design. There is such a wide choice of varieties and colors to choose from, that they can fit in with almost any outdoor flower garden design. They also do well under shrubs or trees, where they will often be a little protected from extreme weather. These types of flowers also make spectacular early spring blossoms.
One excellent choice of autumn flowering plants is the lilac. The lilac has a long blooming season and is extremely fragrant. The blooms of this flower are large, up to five inches in diameter, white to pink in color and trumpet shaped. You will find them under trees, bushes, ledges and on fences. They do well at different times of the year, but their blooms come into bloom around late summer through to early fall. They can be planted late, as soon as the last frosts have disappeared, or in the spring after the last frosts have disappeared.
Gardeners tend to think that there is one right way to plant flower garden plants, but that’s just not true. Each type of flower has its own requirements for growing conditions, space and time of flower growth. Knowing which plants will flower at what time is also very important. For example, the rose requires full sun but will flower more intensely during the evenings. The lily prefers full shade and will flower at daybreak but will wilt if moved to the light. The tulips prefer cooler weather and will flower later in the day when the air temperature is cooler.
There are also several varieties of autumn flowering plants which are suitable for container gardening. These plants will flower during autumn and are ideal for those gardeners with limited space who still want a colour change and some colour all season. The colour will change as the plant’s flower but they do flower at all. The most popular varieties of these flowers are the white and burgundy varieties of the gardenia flower. Both these types of bulbs flower from late summer to early autumn.
In the autumn flowering plants, the September flower is best bought when the last frosts have passed. This flower blooms in autumn and can be planted at any time of the year. In fact, it may be the most appropriate for container gardens. The September flower will bloom in late summer but does not grow very big, which makes it easy to grow. It will flower again in late autumn but may not flower very large. If you don’t like the large size, you might consider buying some dwarf September plants, available in most gardening stores.
The scabiosa flower is another variety of autumn flowering plant that flowers in autumn. It blooms in full sun and has a long, elegant blooming habit. Like the santolinas, the flowers come in a range of colours. Some varieties flower very early, while others flower late, so if you are hoping for a colour change, look out for these blooms.
Cut flowers also play an important role in colour. Many full sun varieties flower cut flowers in full sun. As a result, they have brilliant colour on the stems and lower parts of the branches. When you buy cut flowers, check that the petals are not too short or the blossoms have a yellow tinge.
If you have the time and are looking for the most stunning flowers in autumn, there is no reason why you should not grow these varieties in your garden. There are many varieties available, so you are bound to find something suitable. These plants are very easy to grow and so it is possible to grow them almost everywhere. However, they are very different from those varieties that are grown in the garden and so you may need a certain amount of care to keep them alive and blooming.
