We all love the late color that mums bring to the garden, but this season, why not plant something that comes back year after year? We have a variety of mum alternatives for fall blooms that provide long-lasting color until the end of the season.
There’s More to Fall Color Than Mums!
Sedum is extremely easy to grow and draught tolerant, making it the perfect choice for a rock garden or low maintenance area. This beauty adds fiery color to the late season garden, all the way into fall.
Aster is a native plant that takes care of itself all summer long, and then brings you a "second spring" when it begins its vigorous bloom, just when everything else is about to collapse. Asters are the surefire way of adding great fall color -- for years.
Coral Bells is a vibrant foliage plant with great garden interest that lasts all the way through winter.
Everybody loves them as wildflowers, but the beautiful Black Eyed Susan was never a dependable garden flower until these incredible perennial hybrids were created.
