Add Bold Foliage Plants

Replace summer plants with vibrant foliage plants and flowers. For example, Garden Mums and Pansy both add an autumn classic feeling to your garden space. Both flowers create a dramatic display to your garden or even balcony space. You could also combine different plants and flowers to make your garden space even more vibrant, like Hosta combined with Rhododendron and Coral Bells. The vibrant Hosta will make your garden look lively.

Get Creative & Cover a Bare Patch With a Pumpkin

Got an empty patch but don’t have the time to look for a replacement plant? We suggest adding a pumpkin to the area and designing the space with colorful fall flowers and dark foliage plants.

Plant Cool-Season Flowers

One of the ideas to refresh your summer garden for fall is to fill the space or containers with cool-season flowers in fall colors, such as Pansies. It’s best to plant them during summer, or while the soil is warm, so they’ll bloom from fall to spring.

Play Up Texture

Create a dynamic garden space by combining one or more textural plants like twiggy branches, berries, and grassy leaves. For example, Beautyberry looks great combined with Russian Sage. Both plants have different textures, but they look good together.
