The waning days of fall bring out some of the most beautiful colors in nature. Orange-red leaves, bright berries and fall-blooming heather are the mainstays of the season. A new azalea, Encore Autumn, has the benefit of blooming spring, summer and fall, adding another layer of color. The cheery, daisy-like blooms of Black-Eyed Susan and Echinacea are must-haves in the autumn garden along with their perennial partner, Autumn Joy Sedum.



Designed by Watson’s Landscape Designer, Jackie Fausset for a 4x8’ garden plot.
