Though woodflowers.com deals in wooden sola wood flowers, we, as true nature lovers, always appreciate the beauty and existence of natural blooms. Autumn is the season in which the hot summer days give way to the cold winter days. The days get shorter, and the breezes get colder throughout this season, which lasts from September to December. Everything seems to be at peace, and dawdle walks in parks and streets are more pleasurable.

Autumn also marks the loss of leaves and energy storage by trees and many plants in preparation for the harsh, often disastrous winter. Autumn's unique earth tones are linked to a plant process known as leaf senescence, in which trees' brilliant green leaves change to warm colors as they prepare to shed their foliage and become naked.

Summer doesn't have to signal the end of a vibrant garden; in fact, fall is an excellent time to grow a new crop of flowers. Even when winter sets in, a few hardy tiny winter-blooming bulbs are willing to battle the elements and provide a nice splash of color to brighten the darkest days of the year. These blooms come in a variety of hues, ensuring that the garden remains colorful and alive. Some of the fall and winter season blooms are:

·       Crocus:

Crocuses are among the most well-known of the garden's fall bulbs. Even before their foliage develops, these autumn gems force their flowers through the fallen leaves to create a riot of color. Plant Crocus is a rare Turkish species with beautiful blue marbled petals, among silver birch stems for a fantastic color combination. Wet weather may ruin autumn crocus blooms, so put them behind trees and bushes where they will be protected from severe rains.

·       Chrysanthemum:

Mums appear in festive seasonal hues of red, orange, yellow, peach, and white and contrasting tones of pink create a pillow of color. Because of their widespread appeal, these autumn blossoms come in a broad range of sizes.

·       Turtlehead Chelone:

The Turtlehead chelone blooms appear from late summer to fall, and its blossoms are fashioned like the head of a snapping turtle. A perennial flower spreads fast and returns year after year, eventually forming a dense colony of two-foot-tall flowering stems. 

·       Autumnal Blue:

Autumnal Blue' is a Ceanothus cultivar that adds a gentle yet dramatic blue hue to the landscape. It grows as a tall bushy shrub with small glossy bright green leaves that fade away in fall to reveal a stunning display of clustered, tiny blue flowers. The optimum conditions for 'Autumnal Blue' are sunny locations with well-drained soil. It may be reproduced readily from hardwood cuttings and can grow up to 4 meters tall if left un-pruned. Although it is pretty easy to cultivate, it is vulnerable to fungus and scale insects, which may be controlled using a reasonable homemade soap solution.

·       Dahlia:

These tuberous plants' stunning flowers begin to emerge in the summer but are at their peak from August to September, filling in gaps in borders as other perennials begin to fade. Dahlias come in a broad spectrum of vibrant colors, ideal for adding an exotic touch to brightly colored borders. Dahlias miniature varieties to towering varieties come in different sizes, like Dahlia' Blue Wish,' which look great towards edges.

·       Pansy:

Pretty pansies come in almost every hue of the rainbow and give delightful cool-season color. Pansies are the perfect fall flower because of their versatility and abundance of blooms. Traditional variations form neat mounds. Look for trailing types that may be used as groundcovers or hanging baskets. With a bonus, Plant pansies in the fall, and they will bloom again in the spring in many locations.

·       Yuletide Camellia

The crimson flowers of the yuletide camellia will brighten up your garden not only in the fall but also throughout the winter. It makes an outstanding hedge or boundary shrub because of its brilliant flaming flowers that contrast nicely with its dark, glossy evergreen leaves.

·       Toad Lily:

The toad lily has small but plentiful blossoms and blooms just as the summer flowers are starting to fade. They are both unique and lovely, speckled like their amphibian namesake. Toad lilies thrive in the shade, although they may withstand part sun if well hydrated. Plant them where they can be easily seen and admired in September and October when they can make a great impression.

·       Aster:

Aster may be grown as a lovely fall perennial in many areas, but it also makes a significant annual. Asters are a great way to shake up the usual end-of-season color pallet, blooming in purple, pink, white, and blue.

·       Celosia:

These are long-lasting and easy-to-maintain because its several kinds occur in the traditional color pallet, celosia is a natural for fall.

Also, remember to include celosia in your landscaping beds and borders. In addition, the flame-like plumes of bloom offer interesting vertical texture to other fall flowers.

·       Sternbergia:

Sternbergia bulbs, which look like Crocus, are great for adding color to your garden in the fall. For a considerable effect, scatter these resilient bulbs around rockeries or plant them in large naturalized groupings. Sternbergialutea bulbs are remarkably hardy when planted in the appropriate spot and thrive in poor soils with good drainage.

Gladiolus Murielle's enormous white flowers droop modestly downwards, but the stunning crimson spots at the base of each petal are visible. Enjoy its flowers throughout the autumn, but remember to lift the corms when the grassy foliage dies back - these refined beauties have a delicate disposition. They would rather spend the winter in a cool, dry shed than face the cold outside.
