Let’s take a look at some of the perennials you’re going to start seeing more often:

Fall Florals

Nippon Daisy

Also referred to as the Montauk daisy, this flower begins to bloom late-season. This beautiful white flower has a bright yellow center, so they stand out in any garden or arrangement. Nippon Daisies can grow up to nearly 3 feet tall, and they’re noticed for attracting butterflies. When caring for your daisy, they love the sun, and they need medium water to grow.

Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemums are a trendy fall flower. They are available in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and forms, which is why they are often included in many arrangements.
