The trick to designing your garden with perennial flowers is making sure you have something wonderful in bloom all the time. Each season has its stars and fall blooming perennials have some of the best. The end of summer does not have to mean the end of your vegetable garden. There are several vegetables that actually grow better in the fall. There are less problems with insects and generally plenty of rain.

Pumpkins

Gourds

Gourds have been cultivated for thousands of years by many cultures worldwide, including Native Americans, for their usefulness as utensils, storage containers, and as ornaments.

Mums

Our mums are the divas of any autumn garden. The blooms last for weeks, not days, and the sheer number of flowers per plant will convince anyone that this flower really likes to show off. Add the mum's impressionistic abilities to its longevity, and you have a plant that pulls its weight in the garden.

Indian Corn

Tall annual cereal grass bearing kernels on large ears: widely cultivated in America in many varieties. Primitive corn with variegated kernels, often used for decorative purposes.

Corn Stalks

Fall is a fun time of year to decorate, and we can't think of a better way to decorate your garden, landscape, or porch than with corn stalks. Corn stalks typically have a high amount of leaf matter and this will help in the development of organic matter within your soil.

Straw

Straw is an agricultural by-product, the dry stalks of cereal plants, after the grain and chaff have been removed. Straw makes up about half of the yield of cereal crops such as barley, oats, rice, rye and wheat. It has many uses, including fuel, livestock bedding and fodder, thatching and basket-making.
