Autumn Flowering Perennials.

So it may very well be the time to put on your woolly jumpers and no doubt have already surrendered to putting on the central heating at home, but in your garden there will still be flowering colours to enjoy. Some plants fare much better than others when it comes late flowering potential and we will now take a look at these below:


Crocosmias lend themselves well to landscaping projects and large gardens where a mass of plants is required to create an impact, it an often to be seen planted around lakes and ponds for this very reason. The flowers themselves are trumpet shaped ranging in colour from orange-red-golden shades, creating the perfect impact for late summer plantings.


Penstemon will offer your garden bell-shaped flowers from midsummer to autumn.


The Sedum is as dependable and adaptable as they come for any garden. Its flowers bloom from August into November and is an ideal plant to add if you want some colour for Autumn!


A fantastic plant to add colour to a late summer border and it makes a wonderful companion for ornamental grasses. Heleniums are versatile plants that love plenty of sunshine and moist soil. They rarely suffer from pests or diseases.

Japanese anemone

The Japanese Anemone offers a succession of cup-shaped, rose-pink, semi-double flowers with reddish-pink outer petals from July to September.

Don't say goodbye to that summer garden with many late flowering options readily available to purchase at garden centres or easily online. The peaking flowers of late summer are wide-ranging with many of the exotics and tender perennial patio plants also staying in flower until late September / early October
