Beautyberry and Other Fall Blooms
Fall is in full swing here in Virginia. The leaves are changing and the last of the fall blooming plants are putting on a show.
Late last summer I planted a Beautyberry. This spring I accidentally cut it to the ground thinking it was a weed. Oops! It survived and is covered in beautiful purple berries.
My asters took a beating this summer when two pine trees fell on top of the patch. They survived and are just starting to bloom. These should get prettier as the week goes on and provide several weeks of enjoyment.
My anemones that I blogged about at the beginning of the month continue to put on a show. If you have a deer problem, be sure to keep these sprayed or you’ll have no blooms. This is my best blooming year for them in a long time.
I lost a lot of mums when the tree trucks ran through one of my flower beds but the remaining clumps are blooming prettily.
Our grass growing isn’t going so well as you can see in the picture above. We are hoping that cutting back on watering and warm temperatures this week might do the trick.
Are you enjoying fall blooms in your yard?

I just love the last big burst of color the flowers have in the fall. Everything look beautiful.
Beautyberry is new to me. It is so colorful, almost looks fake! Love all these colors. I was in Leesburg 2 weeks ago (from New Jersey) for some antiquing and the colors hadn’t really started to change yet on the trees. Love all your pretty pictures. Glad to have found your sweet blog.
Look at those Asters! I’m going to have to add those to my flower beds.
Beautyberry is new to me, too! LOVE the color of your asters. They always remind me of autumn!
You have quite the green thumb! I’d never heard of Beautyberry, but love it, beautiful colors!
I love the flowers and the beauty berry~
Why dont’you cover the ground with pine straw and just have flowers for each season(lol)
I love your photos, especially the purple aster! It grows wild here in multiple shades of purple and white!! I love the fall colors don’t you?
I’ve never heard of beautyberry until today, but boy does it live up to its name, or what? So pretty!
