Mums are another great option. Plant them in the ground or keep them in containers to spruce up your outdoor decor! These pretty little flowers continue blooming even when other plants are on the decline for the season.

Pansies always provide a bright and happy pop of color for any landscaping or porch décor. These annuals come in a large range of colors too, so mix and match, or start to formulate your favorite color scheme!

Plumbago is a true blue perennial flower. It is a great plant if you are looking for some ground cover, and its foliage turns red in the fall, creating a beautiful contrast of color!

Asters are vibrant perennial flowers known for their long lasting blooms. Add these to your yard for color that outlasts the rest!

Hardy Hibiscus are another gorgeous perennial flower. Its blooms are very large in comparison, and provide a beautiful, eye-catching touch to any yard with colors range from dark red to white.
