5 Best Seasonal Flowers That We Grow Here at Beautifully Bloomed (Fall)

Hello all! Kathryn the owner and lead designer here at Beautifully Bloomed!

Fall…. that time when everything is winding down, but we still want flowers! This blog post will hopefully help you figure out 5 of the best flowers we grow during this season.

Orlaya. Ahhh Orlaya. If you know me… you know that this is one of my favorite flowers. I typically get these in the spring, but if you sow them in the spring, you can get a second flush come the fall. They are very whimsical and “dance” at the top of your arrangements.

Bachelor Buttons. This is in the same category as Orlaya. Not traditionally in the fall flowers category, but I can sometimes use them in the fall. At the end of the day flowers grow under certain weather conditions. They come in pinks, purples, and blues. Although they are a bit hard to harvest, they add a certain pizazz to any arrangement.

Eucalyptus. Although eucalyptus is not a “flower” nor does it “bloom,” I find that I can pick from it all the way until the end of October. It does prefer the warmer days, but I think cutting it in the summers puts a lot of stress on the plant itself. I try to refrain from cutting them all of the way down until the fall to get the most out of them.

Mums. I have had a hard time growing them, but they create such a soft, bouncy flower that is perfect for the front porch and any bouquets. They grow in whites, creams, pinks, and reds.

Black-eyed Susan. These cuties are considered a perennials and therefore are a good idea to plant if you want a happy little patch of yellow shining through the darker fall days. They come in a variety of yellows and reds so you cannot go wrong. I also recommend buying these from a gardening center, planting them in the fall, and watch them establish the following year.

The fall is probably the hardest time to see flowers bloom. Most people are very tired and are not willing to go out and weed. That’s why I recommend buying pots of fall flowers to enjoy on your front porch during this season.
