Easy-to-grow Fall Bouquets

Searching for a catchy quote to capture this week’s Indian summer-like weather, this unknown author summarized it best. "There comes a time when autumn asks, "What have you been doing all summer?" It’s not time to be drawing a blank. With fall color at its peak, it is still nice to see what is blooming in your garden and better yet, what you can still fetch for indoor color. These perennials in the below photos have cut flower flexibility and fall spread that can take hold in some pretty tough locations. Want some last-minute fall sun power and splash for indoors? Plant die-hards like these. You won’t be scratching your head and saying, “What did I do all summer in the garden?” I must warn that these Chrysanthemums and the Bamboo is a bit invasive and the Willow-leaved Sunflower takes up a fair amount of space, but if planted in the right location, these flowers offer dynamite impact for your floral arrangements.

Willow-leaved Sunflower
Bamboo for your greens (Always available for floral arrangements and invasive so plant wisely!)
Have fun and post your favorite fall floral arrangements for indoor vases. Use the blog search button to find previous posts on all of these plants! Annie
