Autumn Color Garden Plan
Welcome guests to your garden with this colorful perennial bed that offers something interesting to enjoy in every season of the year. To keep things interesting, we've chosen a blue-and-yellow color scheme for spring and summer and a warm color palette of rosy hues for autumn. Although it’s nice-looking year-round, this garden is at its most colorful in autumn, just when other gardens may be starting to wind down.

Featured plants include mums, asters, black-eyed Susans, delphiniums and many more great perennials.
