Decorating for Fall

Posted on August 30th, 2019

As our days get shorter and the nights get cooler, it’s time to start thinking about fall colors and decorating for the season!

One of our staple fall plants here at the garden center is traditional fall mums. They’re available in a wide range of colors, which means you can create a beautiful fall container to match any décor. So what pairs well with mums? Mum buddies! (Or at least that’s what we call them.) There’s really no shortage of mum companion plants, especially given the large variety of colors. To name just a few, you can consider planting:

  • Mums
  • Cabbage
  • Grasses
  • Asters
  • Croton
  • Pansies
  • Celosia
  • Heather
  • Sedum
  • Ornamental peppers
  • Ivy

Once you have the perfect fall container planted up with mums and their buddies, you can pair it with pumpkins, cornstalks, hay bales, and even some Indian corn. Your space will be feeling like fall in no time! Need Help? Stop by the garden center and we can give you a hand selecting your fall plants and accessories!
