Fall Color Ideas

Fall Container Planting

Fall is not just for mums anymore.  Your choices for Autumn and Winter color are far more varied than just a few years ago.  Try combining mums with new varieties of Ornamental Kale and Cabbage, Millet (a red-leafed, wheat-like flowering grass), the more compact varieties of Maiden Grass, and Algerian Ivy to really brighten up your pot and bed arrangements.
