Whether potted or in a vase, flowers add beauty and a sweet scent to a room. Flowers are used for all sorts of occasions. Flowers can also guide you toward becoming more in-tune with the seasons. For instance, certain types of flowers flourish in autumn, many will even remind you of the approaching holidays. From dahlias to chrysanthemums, fall flowers are here and ready to satisfy your senses. On that note, here are a few popular flowers you will come across this fall:
- Dahlia: If you are looking for a flower to create a colorful flower arrangement, go with dahlia flowers. When in a vase, dahlias are one of the longest lasting cut flowers. They come in just about every color except blue, which means you can easily select a bouquet of eye popping fall colors like bright orange, yellow, red and purple. Also, you might be surprised to know that dahlia flowers are found in a variety of shapes resembling other flowers. Some dahlias look like daisies and orchids, some are even shaped like peonies and lovely water lilies.
- Chrysanthemum: Similar to dahlia flower shapes, Chrysanthemums grow into various forms, like pompons, daisies and cute buttons. They become a very decorative table centerpiece when clustered together in a vase, especially in multiple colors. While chrysanthemum flowers are traditionally yellow, you can also find them in red, purple and white.
- Camellia: Camellia plants not only have exquisite flower petals, but they also have pretty shiny evergreen leaves. Camellia flowers can be anywhere between two to five inches across with the potential to grow bigger. The flowers are classically red, pink or white and some camellia plant varieties offer a variegated appearance of the leaves, sometimes even throughout in the petals.
- Echinacea: As an outdoor plant, echinacea feeds pollinators (bees and butterflies) as well as other garden insects. The echinacea flower, also known as coneflower, is a colorful bloom that is typically pinkish-purple, but it’s hybrid sisters grow to be pretty shades of yellow, orange and a fiery reddish-orange. Are there any other colors more fall-like than these?
