Three great plants for fall container gardens:
Mustards for Fall
Cold tolerant, colors range from pinks to greens and purples, making them good to mix with pansies, snaps and other cool-season annuals for the fall container.
Pansies for Fall
Yes, I know everyone plants mums for flower color, but pansies last a lot longer and garden centers and growers are beginning to stock fall, rather than spring colors for fall containers.
Chards for Fall
Especially the rainbow types. Very cold tolerant. What beauties these are and in the perfect colors for fall – reds, yellows and greens for fall containers.
All of these plants are edible.
