    Chrysanthemum (Mums)

    Pansies & Violas
    These colorful annual flowers last fall, winter and into early spring and come in nearly every color under the sun. Plant an array of colors or give your football team a garden shout out and plant your school colors. They thrive in full sun but can take partial sun.

     

     

     

     

    Pumpkins & Gourds
    It’s not fall without pumpkins! Dress up your front step and walkways with pumpkins in various shapes and colors from orange-red heirloom pumpkins, white ghost pumpkins, green and of course orange pumpkins. Stack them to create a pumpkin topiary, cover them with glitter, carve them or just let them relish in the natural beauty. Take fall a step farther and pop gourds into decorative bowls or even container gardens.
