Many of you know that mums and cabbages are great for fall containers because they can take frosty nights and still look great - giving them the staying power you need until it is time to create your winter container. But there are many other plants for sale at the garden center right now (and 25% off!) that are also strong fall choices. Here's a short list of a few annuals and perennials that we use in containers throughout the fall:
calibrachoa (million bells)
annual asclepias (butterfly weed)
heuchera (coral bells)
