We have more than 50 glazed containers decorating the patios in the front and back yards. Many are super impressive, but even more need the gardener’s touch to keep that decorative style through the seasons to come. Here’s my go-to list of autumn plants that outshine the rest though the end of the year.
Some flowers are just bigger, brighter, and showier than others. We have each of the four Prescott seasons covered for flowers that show off in late winter right through the end of the year. These are the biggest and boldest of them all that deliver years of enjoyment.
Recent rains have brought on an explosion of flowering perennials. The moist soil and cool temperatures make for excellent planting conditions, not only for large specimen trees, shrubs, and evergreens, but for perennials, too.
The last frost of May signals the start of the summer vegetable gardens, while June is when the most stunning perennial flowers start blooming. Surprisingly, several summer perennials are pretty and produce a harvest of edible goodness.
