New Autumn Arrivals

Autumn is just around the corner, and at Matlack Florist, we like to celebrate a little early.  We have just received a beautiful array of fall outdoor plants in our nursery this week!

Hardy MumsOne of our most popular outdoor blooming plants in the fall is the hardy mum.  Right now, we are carrying varieties in bright autumn colors like maroon, crimson, and orange, as well as year-round hues such as bright yellow and white.  These plants will bloom late from now to late into autumn, and take in mostly sun.  Be sure to water mums regularly and never let them wilt, and they will add bright pops of color to your fall beds.

oriental peppersAnother plant to add to your autumn outdoor display is the ornamental pepper.  While not edible, these small tropical looking bushes add bursts of fiery color to any garden.  They require full sunlight and regular watering.  Right now, we are displaying the traditional red and purple variety, as well as a variegated leaf pepper and a smaller lime green shade.

The superbells we are carrying at the moment in the shade of “Lemon Slice” are a fun way to add in small blooms of bright color among your beds.  They will bloom into the fall and require full sun.  What a great way tsuperbellso transition your garden from bright and summery to the new fall hues.

Be sure to keep checking in for new varieties of outdoor plants arriving each week!

Our outdoor nursery is overflowing with fall harvest decor! We are especially excited about all of the new varieties of pumpkins that we ordered in this year!  So much so that we decided to get a little creative with them!

Pumpkin stacking has been sweeping the Pinterest world, and we just had to get in on the fun!  So each of our designers took part in putting their own creative spin on the trend.
