Top 10 plants for fall
The go-to fall plant of many Long Island gardeners is the Chrysanthemum. Contrary to popular usage, these plants are perennial and will return every year if allowed to remain in the ground or container. Their yellow, pink, purple, orange, rust or white flowers begin blooming in late September or early October.
But there are plenty of other plants that will color your borders and containers throughout autumn. These are my 10 favorite.
