Dahlia-flower of fall
In autumn, shrubs harvested in spring for their blossoms deliver a different kind of beauty: leaves ranging from red-brown to purple to rusty orange. Dahlias start blooming in late July and can be harvested through October if the frost doesn’t bite. They come in a variety of sizes and are easy to grow in the garden. Autumn also offers unusual flowers, none more interesting than the prehistoric- looking spiky blooms of the castor bean. Dogwood produces green- going-to-red fruits, and Russian olive delivers delightful red berries Last but pods the love in a puff vine, resembling little chartreuse lanterns, float throughout the arrangement.
