What Flowers Represent Fall?

Suddenly the days are shorter. It’s cooler in the morning. Fall is on its way, so it’s time for sunflowers, brightly colored chrysanthemums, bidens, celosias, and more. Autumn flowers offer a pop of vivid color, nicely complementing the fall foliage. When you send someone a vibrant bouquet of fall flowers or a potted plant, they will brighten up even the coldest fall day. At Proflowers, we know that there are gorgeous blooms for every season.


Chrysanthemums come into season in the fall, making them one of the most well-known flowers. These cheerful blooms offer vibrant splashes of color in a wide range of shades, like red, gold, orange, purple, and lavender. Commonly referred to as “mums,” they are often chosen by gardeners to freshen up garden beds after the summer blooms have died. Yet, they also make an excellent choice for a cut flower bouquet. Chrysanthemums symbolize joy, friendship, optimism, and fidelity.


You may have come across bidens before, even if you didn’t know what they were called. It has cheerful, deep yellow blooms that closely resemble daisies. Bidens can also come in orange, and some of the newer varieties are available in pink, gold, and white. Their shades are the perfect accompaniment to the fall foliage. As a potted plant, they will keep their greenery all winter.


Celosias are unusual flowers because they have soft, feathery plumes in vivid colors. They attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. If you opt for the red varieties, they resemble jaw-dropping flames. Celosias are also available in vivid yellow, burgundy, and orange shades. Their dramatic appearance makes them the perfect choice to be the centerpiece of a bouquet, and the warm, autumnal colors make them ideal for the season.

Not every fall bouquet must feature blooms in shades of orange, yellow, and red to mimic the fall foliage. Sometimes, contrasting colors can be an excellent choice. Consider sending your special someone a bouquet of beautiful asters—especially if their birthday is in September—it’s the birth flower.

These flowers bloom in the late summer and early fall. They are daisy-like in appearance and come in a wide range of shades, including purple, lavender, white, and pink. Asters symbolize wisdom, valor, and deep emotional affection. These beautiful fall flowers are named for the Greek word “star.” In fact, the ancient Greeks would burn the leaves of asters in hopes that it would keep evil spirits at bay.
