If your fall border garden is lacking in comparison to the summer's riot of color? These flowers will permanently solve it, so have a look.

Sweet alyssum

Harmony, compatibility, unity, partnership, and agreement are all symbolized by phlox flowers. In addition, aromatic phlox blossoms represent beautiful dreams.


Bidens is a flowering plant genus in the Asteraceae family. Beggarticks, blackjack, burr marigolds, cobbler's pegs, Spanish needles, stickseeds, tickseeds, and tickseed sunflowers are common names for the plant's fruits, which are bristly and barbed with two pointed pappi at the end.

Moss verbena

Moss verbena (Verbena aristigera) is a warm-weather-loving, drought-tolerant, spreading plant that demands full light, according to North Carolina State Extension. This blue-purple beauty will look fantastic in the front of a fall border garden with complementary yellow flowers like bidens or blanket flowers.

Million bells

Million bells (Calibrachoa) is an annual flower that blooms continuously from spring through frost in most growth zones and does not require deadheading. It is typically cultivated in containers or hanging baskets, where it spills beautifully over the sides and has a dense trailing habit rather than a spindly one. Hummingbirds and butterflies are also drawn to Million Bells bushes.


Echinacea, or coneflowers, are robust upright perennials in the daisy family (Asteraceae). They are indigenous to the eastern and central United States, ranging from Colorado to Texas and north to the Great Lakes.

African daisy

African daisies (Osteospermum spp.) resemble common daisies in appearance, with petals radiating from a central disk. They belong to the Asteraceae family, which also includes Shasta daisies and zinnias. However, their vibrant colors are not at all like the traditional daisy.
