5 plants to plant in September to ensure your backyard thrives

If your flowerbeds and container gardens are looking a little flat and dull, they need a quick makeover with an instant boost of color. You may think the growing season is over but the good news is that there are plenty of plants you can pick right now that will add little bursts of heavenly flowers to see you through fall.

Late-season perennials and cold-season annuals are the last flowering delights the garden can offer before the onset of winter. Another advantage is that their colors tend to be intense and saturated because the sunlight is not as intense at this time of year. Choose varieties like chrysanthemums and coneflowers, and on sunny days, the flowers will be covered in pollinators too, busy collecting nectar before winter arrives.
