Celosia flowers are feather-like flowers that range in colors like purples, yellows, and orange. They are easy to care for and are ideal flowers for beginner gardeners. Celosias are drought-tolerant so they can go a while without needing to be watered. You can see celosia flowers begin to bloom from mid-summer to mid-autumn. The colors and requirements make them a perfect addition to your garden during the fall months. Our team of professionals can plant a wide selection of annual flowers like celosias.
Viola flowers are one of the few flowers you can find blooming in the middle of winter. They love the cold weather and can even survive a dusting of snow! If you want flowers on your lawn all year long, we recommend planting some violas so that even when your other flowers are not in bloom, your violas will be radiant as ever. The best time to plant violas on your property is when the weather is cool, making fall the perfect time to plant your viola flowers.
For a wide variety of color options for your fall flower garden, zinnia flowers are your best option! They come in an array of bright and pastel colors. You can even find zinnia flowers that are bi-color, tri-color, single petals, semi-doubles, and doubles. There is a zinnia for every occasion!
