Colorful Ideas for Fall Flower Containers

Evergreen plants

Idea #7: Evergreens Hold Their Shape

Many cool weather flowers, such as pansies, are low growing and delicate. Use small evergreen plants and shrubs – such as rosemary, lavender, boxwood, ivy, or dwarf conifers – to add structure, texture, and height.

    Love the idea of fall flowers; so colorful. I libve in the south so the weather does not change to dramatic here, do you have any suggestions for Florida Fall gardens?

    Thank you for fall ideas. I love container gardening especially this time of year, trying to keep that summer color going year round. I live in a very rural area with acres of foliage around me, so whatever isn’t growing in my garden I usually find in the woods to decorate my landscape. I generally use all natural foliage every time I decorate in and outdoors whether its a front door decoration or a small container indoors. Again thank you for some ideas on container decorating, I look forward to your next newsletter. I wish I had discovered your site earlier. And just a suggestion I really liked your cover photo of container decorating but had to guess what flowers they were, listing them would have been made it easy to figure out what they were.
