Fall Designs

Fresh for Fall

For fall, I love utilizing shrubs or evergreens as a focal point or base. You can achieve size, texture, and colors that can be hard to achieve with annuals alone. Shrubs can provide a backdrop for smaller, fine-textured plants, which also can help balance the visual weight of a container. With perennials you can also add an unexpected “wow” factor with pops of color and depth. There is a variety of options in frost-tolerant annuals to combine for interesting colors and textures.

Some favorite Autumn materials
  • Brassica oleracea (or ornamental kale)

  • Bracteantha bracteata (or Strawflower)

  • Celosia argentea (or Plumed Cockscomb)

  • Heuchera species (or Coralbells)

  • Hydrangea macrophylla 

  • Petunia cultivars

  • Echinacea cultivars (or Coneflowers)

  • Eucalyptus gunnii (or Cider Gum)

  • Beta vulgaris varieties (or ornamental beetroot)

  • Capsicum annuum varieties (or ornamental peppers)
