Ten Fall Perennial Flower Garden Favorites

#2: Asters

(Aster sp.)

Blooming from late August until early October, asters form bushy mounds of daisy-like blooms in shades of purple, blue, pink, and white. They like full sun and well-drained soil, with plenty of air circulation. Like chrysanthemums, they can be pinched back during the summer to encourage prolific fall blooms.

Hardy to zone 3.
