5 Fabulous Fall Flowers


Autumn is fast approaching and with it, the chill of winter. But you don’t have to let your garden go just yet…these flowers blossom throughout the fall season so you’ll keep these bright blooms well into the cooler months.

Flowers That Bloom In Autumn

Dianthus

dianthus

This genus of flower accounts for over 300 individual species–most are some shade of pink. This flower is famous for it’s strong, spicy fragrance. Make sure to plant this flower early on in the fall as it’s unlikely to last through the first frost of the season.

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Fun fact: It’s rumored that the color pink was actually named after this flower!

Toad lily

Oakleaf hydrangea

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.

When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
