Plants You Can Combine With Autumn Blooms

Autumn will enchant you with its wide range of colors! The arrival of autumn signals that it is time to replace the summer flowers in your garden vases and balcony boxes with colorful autumn blooms. Here’s a guide on which plants to combine to create beautiful flower arrangements in autumn colors and how to keep them looking beautiful for a long time.

Colorful Heathers

The flowers of the common heather can vary in color from white to deep red, and there are both single and filled varieties. Heathers can be added to beds, amplitudes, balcony boxes, and garden vases as they offer beauty everywhere. Heather is a perfect ornamental plant because it remains beautiful into winter, and even after the plant dies back, it retains its decorativeness until spring. This flower goes well with buckwheat.

No special care is needed when planting heather in a garden vase, but care must be taken to ensure that the plants do not become dry. It is important to remember that heather planted in a vase needs to be watered until the soil freezes, even in rainy weather. There should be holes under the vase to allow excess water to drain out of the vase.
