GROW YOUR OWN FALL CUTTING GARDEN
Arrange gorgeous floral displays with stems grown in your own backyard! Plant autumn-blooming flowers and showy grasses together for a dedicated fall cutting garden, or add some late-season varieties to your spring and summer beds. With either option, you can enjoy cutting your own fresh stems until the first frost. For a longer season, plant a few of your favorites in lightweight containers that can be moved to a protected area during the first few cold snaps. Get started by researching the varieties below.
CLASSIC BLOOMS: Asters, dahlias, garden mums, strawflowers, sunflowers, zinnias.
FANTASTIC FILLERS: Amaranth, blue spirea, goldenrod, Russian sage, sedum.
STRIKING UPRIGHTS: Feather reed grass, pampas grass, purple fountain grass.
HARDY SHRUBS: Butterfly bush, oakleaf hydrangea, ninebark.
