FALL: This outstanding unique combination, of plant selection, color, and texture would easily last from early fall until a hard frost. Making it a wonderful choice to both draw the eye, while being cost effective, transitioning from Summer to Fall, throughThanksgiving. It should easily last until one is ready to change the container to a holiday arrangement.
An easy way to decorate for fall is with attractive container arrangements for your deck or porch.
Fall Container Garden idea - The proportions of this 2-foot-tall urn support the height of the purple fountaingrass, Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum'. Add more autumn color with red-leaf coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides 'Sedona', upper left); the bronze-and-golden blooms of Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherokee Sunset', Calibrachoa 'Million Bells Terra Cotta' and 'Scarlet' pansies around the base. The brown grass Carex flagellifera 'Toffee Twist' fills out the right edge.
'Burgundy Giant' red fountaingrass provides a rusty backdrop for dark pink, daisylike 'Cecilia' chrysanthemum and cheerful Sundaze Golden Yellow strawflower. Petite blue fescue adds texture at the front of the vintage container
