Bright Colors & Reliability!

 

With the fall season ramping up, we are seeing bright swaths of color among many varieties this week. As you begin thinking about perennial selections for cool-season mixed containers and planters (our topic of discussion last week) as well as in-ground plantings for fall landscapes, consider this week’s gallery, curated for its bright fall colors AND reliability.

A Bright Fall Color Palette

With many of our most popular fall crops pushing blooms, we are encouraging our customers to anticipate upcoming demand and place orders now! If you’re a color lover (and who isn’t?), then we think you’ll be impressed by the palette we’ve observed around the farm in the last week. From bright reds and pinks in the Red, Peach & Pink Drift Roses, to the lavender-pink, flower clusters on the Joe Pye Weed AND the buttery, pale yellow blooms of the ‘Happy Returns’ Hemerocallis daylily, there is a swatch to compliment any landscape.

Reliability = Repeat Performance

In addition to wowing where they’re planted, this week’s selection is also known for its reliability. Back in the spring, we tackled the definition and importance of “reliability.” Check out that post here, where we list 13 of our favorite reliable plants!

Reliability alludes to a plant’s ability to continuously perform well when planted in the correct environment. All of the plants we added to this week’s gallery are handpicked for this reason. When we think of any of these crops, what come to mind are shrubs that are both easy-to-grow and resilient. This differs from many colorful perennials that have the downside of being “finicky” or “fragile” at either end of the temperature or dryness bell curves. Enjoy this week’s selection for their color AND reliability in a fall landscape!
