Hoping to get pansies and johnny-jump-ups, if I can find them...maybe a mum or two.
Asters are pretty for fall...

what else would be good for fall to freezing temps? Depending on where you live of course...

I have had luck with Celosia and Sedum. BUT, they are picky in terms of the weather.

I just looked at that site, it was funny to see what was listed because I went to a nursery today to pick up a couple flats of autumn/winter plants and the nursery's front entrance special sales tables were loaded down with flats of all 12 types of those same plants listed.

I got a flat of orange winter pansies and a flat of violet/purple winter violas that I plan to put in the ground tomorrow.

I recently got two hanging baskets of purple-pinkish mums on sale. I've only hung one by my side door, but it looks amazing with the plants, flowers and woodchips there.

I'm going to take my daughter to a Bordines' class that will let us make a fall-color pot of mums, ornamental cabbage and peppers, ivy and juncus grass. Bordine's class in Michigan

It's really about time I get to enjoy sprucing up my yard for any reason.

Mine too but I have planted it and it does give a nice burst of color amidst some of the more fall type flowers.
