Who doesn’t love Autumn color? This is the time of year where trees, shrubs and perennials take main stage in the landscape. In this post I share small space new Autumn garden planting ideas. I recently tore out and old over grown garden and added winning varieties you are going to love.
Sunrise with Autumn Color Planting Idea – V-log
Beautiful morning in the garden just outside the mudroom door. I share my newly planted shrubs with spectacular color.
The first plant new to this garden space is the ‘Little Devil’ (Physucarpus Apulifolium ‘Donna May’ ) shrub. The color is perfect and size is just right for walkway garden landscape. This variety grows 3-4′ H x 3-4′ W. Easy to prune back most anytime of the year.

Little Princess Spirea
Spirea has been a long time favorite in my gardening career. It is easy to take care of, provides great color and the pollinators love the blooms. #win This is the ‘Little Princess Spirea’ (Spiraea Japonica ) that grows 18″x 24″ and loves full sun.

This shrub had no tag but was marked 75% off. I can’t wait to see how this PJM rhododendron preforms in my garden tucked in the corner facing south near the mudroom. I’m really EXCITED to have this in my collection so I hope it survives.

Below is the collection of plants from the morning video blog. These plants are in the newly planted mud room facing south garden well protected by my home.

Sedum is always a win in the landscape.
Beautiful rudebeckia from local garden center.
I couldn’t believe the price of this Rudebeckia that was mixed in with Autumn mums at local garden center. I bought 3 for $16. I’m hoping they live up to their reputation and reseed in this same location for next Autumn.
Container Design with Gourds
Not sure what hanging plant will do in Autumn on your porch… just add some gourds for color. These will stay hanging on display until after Thanksgiving when I add my pine cuttings for winter.
