Colorful Ideas for Fall Flower Containers
By: Julie Day
Idea #2: Choose Cool Weather Flowers
Pansies, violas, and snapdragons are favorite annuals for the fall garden; and hardier varieties might even hang on through the winter and get a second wind in early spring. They’re often mixed with shorter-blooming perennials such as chrysanthemums, asters, heather, and anemones. When choosing flowers for containers, look for ones that are hardy to a planting zone or two colder than yours, since the soil in containers is colder than ground soil.
