One of my favorite fall blooming plants is ‘Fireworks’ Goldenrod, Solidago rugosa. Don’t worry about Goldenrod bothering your allergies, that’s a myth. This plant rewards a gardener with beautiful yellow cascading blooms in the fall and best of all, the deer leave it alone. It is aggressive and spreads easily, but it’s easy to pull up the stray plants.
In a perfect world, my plants would look like this:
Colchicums are another fall favorite. The bulb’s foliage comes up in the spring and then the blooms pop out of the ground in the fall. All of my bulbs came from my grandmother’s garden.
I am anxiously awaiting blooms from my Chrysanthemums and Asters. It won’t be long! What’s blooming in your garden?
