1. Ornamental Grasses
These beauties bring a sense of grace and wild abandon to your garden. We've got some top-notch picks for you this season, as grasses come in a large variety of shapes and sizes. Plant them in your garden or in pots with other autumn accent plants, and enjoy the height they bring to the garden.
Looking to add a pop of fiery color to your garden? Celosia is your go-to plant! With its blazing reds, oranges, and yellows, it's like a firework show in your garden. Plus, its unique, velvety texture adds a whole lot of oomph to your outdoor space. Check out the fluffy Celosia argentea (Plume Celosia) or the fancy-pants Celosia cristata (Cockscomb Celosia) for a hot new look.
3. Ornamental Peppers
If you like it hot, you're gonna love ornamental peppers. These small but mighty plants come in a kaleidoscope of colors and sport cute, chili-like fruit. Capsicum annuum (Ornamental Pepper) is the life of the party, and it's ready to add some spice to your garden or indoor decor. Just remember, they may look hot, but they're purely for show!
4. Ornamental Kale
Ornamental kale is a great pairing plant for containers. Its leaves form intricate rosettes in shades of purple, green, and white. These hardy folks thrive in cool weather, making them perfect for fall. Brassica oleracea acephala (Ornamental Kale) not only adds a feast for the eyes but also some extra sass to your autumn garden.
Last but not least, mums are the OG early fall plant. Their blooms come in shades of yellow, orange, red, and purple, and they're a classic choice for autumn vibes. You can shape and prune these champs however you like, making them a must-have for your fall plant collection. Mums - the unofficial ambassadors of fall!
