Keep the color going in your fall garden with a combination of summer- and late-blooming annuals and perennials.
By Kristy BruceMore in Outdoors
The Mexican sunflower can produce a explosion of late-season color as long as hot weather continues into early fall. Vibrant orange or red daisy-like flowers bloom on thick stems amid leaves covered in bristly fuzz. Stems can reach up to 6 feet tall and need shelter from strong winds. Plant in a hot, dry area in full sun and well-drained, fertile soil. Heat and drought resistant. Excellent for attracting butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
