Summer has its own special delightful dazzle of flowers, but when you are looking to grow a beautiful flowering fall garden in the Midwest, what flowers should you choose? The Midwest is known to have some very warm and very cool fall days – so flowers that are hardy are a must. We have picked five that we think would make your autumn flowerbed, garden or container garden pop!

Five Beautiful Fall Flowers Perfect For Indiana

  • Viburnums
  • Ornamental Kale
  • Ornamental Peppers
  • Turtlehead
  • Sedum

Viburnums blossom in spring, but they show their glorious true beauty in the fall, when they come to full fruition, complete with berries! The American cranberry bush is included in this species, which bears bright red berries, perfect for any autumn garden. Also included is arrowwood, which produces clusters of berries that are so blue they are nearly black.

Ornamental kale is a gorgeous pink and purple people-please that thrives in cool temperatures, so cool nights are no problem. The leaves of ornamental kale can be smooth or ruffled.They do particularly well in a container and are staples of gardens in the Midwest,

Ornamental peppers are gorgeous hues of orange, white, yellow and red, and they thrive in sunny, cool, well-drained soil. While they are edible, they are extremely hot, and also hot if you are working with them – so wear gloves if you are handling the fruit. These beauties were meant to be admired more than eaten!

Turtleheads are aptly named- they look like head of a snapping turtle and are tubular, thriving in rich, wet, cool soil. They have showy flowers of bright pink or brilliant white and can grow up to three feet tall.

Sedum in technically a succulent, but its bushy appearance and classic rusty hues make it a fall favorite in the midwest. Plants vary in size and color, but many bear names that are bursting with fall, such as “Autumn Joy” and “Frosty Morn”. They do well with a few frosts, and turn deeper shades of red as they age.
