It’s time to switch our summer container gardens for an autumn look, especially now that the days are growing that little shorter and temperatures are getting lower. Below we’ve listed a few of our favourite autumnal blooms along with an array of floral Instagram accounts, all of which are guaranteed to give you tips when it comes to decorating with flowers this autumn.
Bold and beautiful chrysanthemums create a cushion of colour in bright, seasonal hues of red, orange, peach, yellow and white, as well as various contrasting shades of pink. Because of their huge popularity, you can find these autumn flowers at online florists in a huge variety of styles and sizes. They look great when applied to home decor and promise to add an instant injection of colour to both the home and the garden.
Pretty pansies boast an array of equally cool-season hues in just about every shade imaginable. These blooms are extremely versatile and bloom in abundance. When it comes to autumn flowers, these are one of the ideal options. Old-fashioned varieties tend to grow in tidy mounds, whilst other variants are more extravagant in style. You can also purchase varieties that trail and which are ideal for use as ground cover or in hanging baskets.
When these blooms are planted in the autumn months, they can come back to bloom again in the spring. Freshly picked pansies are an ideal addition for your interiors too and are a great choice for those wishing to add an injection of colour to accompany their home decor.
Durable and easy to maintain, celosia is a natural option for autumn home decor. This is mainly because many of the varieties available come in the traditional colour palette, including hues such as bright yellows, warm oranges, scarlet red, and deep burgundy-purple accents.
Purple Fountain Grass
While not a bloom as such, purple fountain grass is the perfect accompaniment to an array of other autumn flowers. Its burgundy-purple foliage pairs extremely well with other hues and adds a wonderful texture to plantings.
This is an ideal option for the autumn months. This houseplant thrives in cold-weather regions (and frost-free areas), and also grows well as an annual. When it comes to autumnal home decor, it’s this bloom’s flamboyant foliage and rich shades of red, orange, yellow, and purple that give it the wow factor. Look to different variants to find the perfect croton for your interior style.
