Fall Plant Ideas

James welcomes Eric to the nursery. James has ordered a lot of plants because fall is a great time for planting, especially with the hot summers in the DC Metro area. There is plenty of color represented in these plants. The Russian Sage, a shorter variety, is perfect for late summer, early fall with its vibrant purple color. Plumbago is an excellent shade plant that also has a wonderful blue color. In fact it's one of the best blues, especially as a ground cover. Another stunning plant, that hasn't been in the trade very long is Companula Pantaloons. Eric would call it a double. It has another petal on top of the normal Companula flower. It's a great plant for the garden, a wonderful fall bloomer. We saw Solidagos earlier in the meadow, James has a dwarf variety, Crown of Rays. It provides an excellent pop of yellow and only grows to 2 to 3 feet tall. A wonderful garden plant. James will be planting more Asters this fall. We, too, saw them in the meadow, but they're great in the garden as well.
