Fall is the time when you pull out the summer annuals from your container gardens and replace the plants with colorful fall shrubs and flowers.
Today I removed the annuals from the containers and then got the containers ready for fall plantings by adding some compost.
In the fall I like to add color and interest to my container gardens and tend to be creative by planting shrubs, pansy’s, grasses, ground covers and Chrysanthemums.I also like to plant urns of purple and yellow cold hardy pansies. Pansies are good way to add color to your fall containers
These plants are will make a long lasting container that will last until Thanksgiving. If your winters are mild the container will last throughout the winter season and will make the entrance of you home feel warm and inviting.

Elephant Ear Containers look good in the fall as long as there is no hard frost. Accent your containers with yellow Chrysanthemums. Leave the elephant ears in the container until it is time to cut them back, dig up or bring them indoors.
