Fall Blooming Perennials

marti_n_midwest_moderator | Posted in Midwest Gardening on

Visiting a client recently I was reminded of some plants I haven’t used for awhile.  The Chelone is in full bloom, providing a lovely swath of bright color along the edge of the pool deck.  What is blooming in your garden this late in the season?

    Vernonia lettermanii 'Iron Butterfly' (ironweed) is just starting to show some color in Southern WI after offering amazing texture for so many months! Love it!

      I just planted this. One of my favorites for multi-season appeal! Not quite blooming yet here in CT.

    My sedum autumn joy is lovely. Also blooming is my mums, ligularia Britt Marie Crawford, tall pink garden phlox, Russian sage, and hydrangeas.

    Our Hydrangeas are looking glorious. This is Little QuickFire, one of my favorites.

    We have aromatic asters (patiently waiting), Montauk daisies, late blooming sunflowers (also waiting), and mums planted from potted varieties bought the last few years.

    Have you had better luck with potted mums than the perennial varieties. Seems like the seasonal ones in large containers at all the stores this time of year do better than other I have tried. Regardless of the variety, they all seem to disappear after a few years.
