Fall Fireworks

Trees, shrubs, and frost tolerant grasses and perennials ignite a passion for the glories of autumn when planted in your garden pottery & plant containers.
 
Wrapped in blazing gold and firey red with flickers of violet blue, an autumn landscape captures all the colors of a flame, and it's just mesmerizing.  Sit outside under a blazing tree canopy and enjoy a warm cup of coffee.  Don't leave your garden plants sitting empty.  Fill with fierce bold colorful plants and finish the look.

The variety of
potted plants make any patio or garden area inviting with this lovely glow.  Witch hazel draws the eye and feet to the sweetest surprise by creating a fire bowl, stuffed full of this plant.  Blue notes included Lambs ear, blue spruce and blue gray ornamental grasses. Gold spirea and golden mop cypress, potted, add bring yellow green pops so plant them in traditional terracotta or bold colorful garden planters.
 
You don't have to have a big plan.  Just go with the idea that right now a touch of color is enough to make you want to wander into your yard and adore the beauty.

If you are just a bit tired or want an easy way to set the area on fire then start with the easiest most radiant flowers.   Mums in reds and oranges, marigolds which always look stunning this time of year, salvias and herbs smell good and add intense colors to any display.  Take a simple garden pot like terracotta and set it on fire with an intense burst of color from any of these types of plants & flowers.

Want something a bit more dramatic?  Try lion's tail it will grow very tall and burst with orange blooms that are great for attracting hummingbirds, and butterflies.  To really burst on the scene with color start with a colorful red, orange, copper or rust garden planter and then fill it with deep intense greens.  Very ornamental in nature.
 
Think berries would be fun?  There are many types of trees and shrubs that offer fall and winter berries that are brightly lit.  The crab apple is really easy and hard to kill.  Make sure it's disease resistant and you will be richly rewarded with color from spring thru winter.  How about trying to grow some vibrant leaves for decorating with.  Of course Maple are the easy choice.  Their stunning red and orange leaves are lacy, poetic and radiant in garden pottery.  Make sure you find the size that is easy to pot and you will be rewarded with blazing color.

Arizona Pottery has a fantastic section of glazed pottery which has every color in the rainbow.  This is not the time to be timid and select pastels.  You want vibrant bold colors that will light up your patio or garden area
.
When it comes to plant materials here are a few suggestions:

The photo here show two coleus - Dappled Apple and plum colored Velvet lime.  They are joined by a cascade of Angelina sedum.  Stunning!

Photo at left shows Lime green Japanese forest grass and a simple pumpkin is added for character.  Simple yet lovely!

Copper leaf plants and trailing ivies add a rich touch to all containers!  Use Japanese maples which have lush red leaves.
