Late-Season Perennials: Home
Perennials are a wonderful addition to any garden and can provide color and interest throughout the year. The top 5 players in the late-season garden would have to be asters (Aster), chrysanthemums (Dendranthema), goldenrods (Solidago), Joe-Pye weed (Eutrochium) and stonecrops (Sedum). Below is a longer list to keep your garden in color throughout the fall season.
