Fall Decorations – From your garden

Before you cut down your garden, decide which plants should be saved to use in decorating your window boxes, flowerpots, or any area you want to have a fall festive feel.

For the window boxes I use Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, Astilbes, pods from Belamcanda, Hakoneckloa leaves, Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’ flowers, Callicarpa dichotoma ‘Early Amethyst’, Hosta pods, Anemone japonica stems, Rudbeckia ‘Goldstrum’, Hydrangea invincible spirit,  and Cornus sericea ‘Farrow’ ARCTIC FIRE.

Magical! And just think, all from the garden.

Anemone japonica – Friendly fall bloomer

Who wouldn’t like to be greeted by a garden ambassador, the japanese anemone!? The flowers sway in the wind, high atop the foliage. It looks as if they are waving hello to me each time I peruse my garden. They never fail to bring a smile to my face.

This is a long blooming perennial for sun to part shade. A must for the fall garden. My white Anemone japonica is still blooming today.
