3 Colorful Autumn Plants For A Splash of Color

These 3 plants are adding a splash of color to my autumn garden instantly.  Impressive how they have been bloom for well over a month.  The blooms keep coming on these Chrysanthums and Pansy plants.  Despite the fact that they aren’t in a designated container.  I share the key to keeping these plants healthy and happy below the video.  After reading a Facebook comment asking about the Gigi Yellow Mum I made this video.  The video shares my story and an up-close look at these amazing plants.  I hope you will watch the video and consider subscribing to my YouTube Page if you have an account.

3 Colorful Autumn Plants Close Up

I was going to title the blog ‘annuals’ but to be honest with you if you plant mums and pansies correctly they are perennials.  I am in hardiness zone 5b Ohio and I have had both pansies and mums survive our winters.  The key is keeping the plant watered during the autumn growing season and protecting the established roots during the winter.  Below I will share details on each plant featured in this video post.

Purple Pansy

I am guessing that this is a Pansy Delta Premium Neon Violet because the description I found on Harris Seed fits.  The plant is fall standing at about 8″ height.  It is definitely not a trailing or Wave Pansy.  The stems are sturdy and the bloom has last a long time in the drastic weather conditions we’ve had this month.

Orange Mum

This ‘Orange Mum’ caught my eye because of its bloom featuring hints of purple in the sun.  I have no idea what variety it is.

Gigi Mum

As I note in the video – when you shop at small mom and pop garden centers you will most likely get details on tagged plants. The shape of this Gigi Mum and the little petite continuous blooms is what caught my attention.
