Top Flowers for Fall Color
They're beautiful, affordable, come back year after year, and they're blooming their heads off right now.
New England asters sound as if they would melt in warmer climates. Not so. In fact, they're tough, dependable, and trouble free from north to south. Their blossoms resemble daisy mums in form, but asters usually grow loose and tall (good for the back of the border) and offer the blue and purple colors mums lack.
Our favorites include 'Harrington's Pink,' 'Hella Lacy' (purple), 'September Ruby' (red), 'Alma Potschke' (salmon-rose), and 'Purple Dome.'
