The fall season is a great time to enhance the beauty of your landscape beds by adding flowers to them. Flowers are a great way to add color and texture to your landscape beds and they can enhance their overall curb appeal. In Iowa, four, eye-catching flowers that can add to the beauty of your landscape beds this fall are pansies, snapdragons, larkspur, and the California poppy. Pansies are great flowers to add to your landscape beds during the fall and their unique color patterns are sure to make your beds stand out! Snapdragons are slow-growing flowers, but when fully grown, they turn into something memorable to see. With stalks of blue blossoms, larkspur flowers thrive in flower beds with good light conditions and require minimal maintenance. Lastly, California poppies will add a bright orange and yellow color to your landscape beds and they thrive throughout the fall months. By adding these four flowers to your landscape beds this fall, you can instantly increase their overall curb appeal.
If you are looking for unique flowers to add to your landscape beds this fall, then pansies are the flowers for you. These are flowers with heart-shaped petals that are bright in color and have different types of unique patterns on them. During the growing season for pansies, watering these flowers regularly is important to ensure they can grow to their full potential. Pansies should be a top choice for anyone looking to help beautify their property immediately during the fall.
Snapdragons bloom in a variety of colors, making them the perfect fit for any color scheme you may want for your landscape beds. Snapdragons are low-maintenance plants that grow to 1-3 inches in height and thrive in well-draining soil. For the best results, plant snapdragons during the colder fall months because the cool weather triggers their blooming. These plants love direct sunlight and bring a burst of color to your flower beds throughout the fall months.
Larkspur is a common flower that gets planted year after year because of its unique dark purple and navy blue colors. These flowers are relatively low-maintenance, however, they need to be watered and fertilized to help them reach their full potential. Because these are cool-season annuals, they thrive the most during the fall months and tend to die out once the warmer weather arrives.
When planting larkspur flowers, be sure to always use well-drained soil.
4. California Poppy
The California poppy is known for its bright orange and yellow colors that turn your flower beds into something beautiful to look at. They are considered to be drought-tolerant flowers, so you won't need to water them often for them to look their best. Late spring is the perfect time to start planting them so that when fall comes around, these flowers can thrive in their most adaptable environment. If planted at the right time during the growing season, California poppies are one of the most beautiful and easy-to-grow flowers to add to your landscape beds.
