Top flow­ers to plant and grow in the au­tumn gar­den.


You don't need an ar­bore­tum to achieve the stun­ning hues of fall. In­stead, get the full flavour of the sea­son with blooms in sun­set shades. Or­ange dahlias, golden sun­flow­ers, bright yel­low sol­idago, and yel­low and or­ange rud­beckia all de­pict au­tumn vi­brancy. All are long-last­ing in the vase too and are likely to ap­peal to the wild-at-heart or rus­tic and ro­man­tic as­pir­ing florists.
