There's no excuse for a boring fall garden! Late blooming perennials like Asters, Dendranthema, Sedums and Solidago are essential pollen sources for native pollinators, and are available in a range of colors. Aconitum and native Cimicifuga are great options for the shade.

Fall Planted Bulbs
Fall is the time to plant spring bulbs! Perennial, early blooming bulbs can be planted until the soil freezes solid. Tuck them into rock gardens, pop them under trees or scatter them at the edge of the lawn. With careful planning, you can have blooms from late March to early May!
