Want to spice up your home for fall? Consider planting any of these flowers…


With colors ranging from orange to maroon to creamy white, it’s easy to see why mums are one of the most popular flower choices for fall. They’re also relatively cheap and notoriously hardy, making them the perfect flower for beginners.


Need to add some visual interest to your garden? Consider the helianthus. These plants can grow anywhere from 4 to 10 feet! And they can attract swarms of butterflies to your garden!


Like mums, asters are available in a wide range of fall colors. They’re hardy and can be planted in both the northern and southern regions of North America.


Here in Texas, we need our plants to tolerate heat. That’s where the sedum comes in. Sedums come in several fall shades of red and are known for the ability to survive heat and drought.


Heleniums are another great choice for adding visual appeal. They grow quite tall and come in several fall colors. They’re also easy to grow, tolerate of various conditions and attractive to butterflies!
