As summer draws to a close, most flowers are fading and gardens are slowly becoming deserted. If that’s the case in your garden, we’ll help you fix it in today’s article. All you need to do to make a difference is to know which perennials will flower in the autumn months and then plant them.
Which perennials are right for you?
There are plenty to choose from, both species and colours. You can reach for the very familiar or less traditional ones such as shamrocks, flamingos or flamingoes. We have selected 3 of the most commonly grown perennials, which are particularly popular for their variety, beautiful appearance and low maintenance. They include:
The uniqueness of chrysanthemums
If you enjoy colours ranging from yellow to orange to red or purple, chrysanthemums will be just the thing for you. They should not be missing from your garden. Originally from the Far East, they have also gained popularity in China and Japan, as they carry the symbolism of human perfection. In our country, people like to wear them in cemeteries for their durability, but they are equally suitable for any other decoration.
The asters are said to be the queens of autumn, and indeed they are. They will brighten up your garden even on the chilly days that autumn brings. Their petals play with various shades of purple, but white is increasingly typical. They bloom profusely and reach a height of up to 70 cm. It is not surprising that they are so popular and can be found not only in Europe and North America, but also in Asia and Africa.
The uniqueness of tails
The ocún is a typical autumn plant that flowers from September to November. It will delight you with its beautiful purple, white or pink flowers and its completely undemanding growth requirements. In fact, it can flower even from an unplanted tuber, i.e. without soil and water. Beware, however, as this garden beauty is highly poisonous. It contains toxic alkaloids, so consider planting it, especially if you have small children or pets at home.
