#1 Balloon Flower
Balloon Flowers are gorgeous. They come in shades of blue, white, and pink—resemble hot-air balloons before they blossom. These fall flowers do well with full sun, but can also thrive in partial shade.
Goldenrod performs beautifully in full sun and well-drained soil. But beware if you suffer from allergies, as their pollen can cause a runny nose and itchy eyes.
#3 Hardy Fuchsia
This hardy fuchsia would add a burst of color to your garden. Be sure to grow it in the right soil—not too dry, moist, or hot to make them grow well and bloom gorgeously.
Canna can reach up to 8 feet high and bloom beautifully from May until October, depending on the type and place. Plant dwarf varieties in containers.
Amaranthus bears gorgeous tassel-like flowers each fall that look great in arrangements — both fresh-cut and dried.
Did you know that Dahlias come in just about every color under the sun? Certain varieties will keep blooming from mid-summer into fall. Pick range- and red-tinted varieties for autumn bouquets.
Cornflower shows off bright-blue beauties that are also appealing to birds and butterflies. For continued flowering, deadhead spent blooms.
Celosia is also known as cristata. It bears crested flowerheads several inches wide well into autumn.
Sunflowers may peak mid-summer, but they will keep shooting up, up, up even as the weather cools. You can harvest them when the seeds start to turn brown, or the backs of the seed heads turn yellow.
#10 Dusty Miller
Dusty Miller is also called Jacobaea Maritima. This fluffy silver plant would make for an unexpected addition to your garden. Keep it well-drained in a place that gets full sun.
