There are sunflowers for summer and tulips for spring, but don’t forget about these fall flowers that are sure to bring a smile to your face this autumn.
As part of the amaranth family, this vibrant red and orange ornamental plant is known for its flame-like appearance, and will make any centerpiece pop. It’s a low maintenance flower too, due to the rugged and stiff nature of this type of this bloom.
This perennial, nicknamed “Sneezeweed,” is another favorite for autumn because of the shades of red, orange, brown, and yellow. This flower is in the sunflower family, so for those who want to keep the sunflower magic alive throughout fall, these are the perfect alternative.
Don’t be put off by the name, spider mums are the way to go for fall flower arrangements. They can be put in a shallow bowl with other seasonal elements—think sweetgum branches or maples leaves— to make for one standout centerpiece.
One of the colder weather favorites, this annual is delicate and bicolored, making it a perfect addition to your fall arrangement. It does best in partial shade and can even be grown into the winter months.
