What Flowers Bloom in Fall?

While spring and summer are synonymous with colorful gardens in full bloom, autumn has its fair share of brilliant blossoms and gorgeous, jewel-toned plants. Fall flowers can be just as amazing as their warm-weather counterparts, with lovely combinations of amber, crimson, orange, gold, and yellow hues.

When the temperatures begin to dip, these perennials and annuals are just starting to show off their vibrant blooms.

Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemums, or mums, also bloom in the fall. They are simple to grow and come in a bevy of seasonal colors, including orange, red, yellow, pink, white, and peach. Mums are great for patios and porches, and provide a lush accent for floral centerpieces.

Aster
