6 Flowers That Bloom During Cold Weather

Posted on

The weather has changed drastically – these days you are apt to choose a jacket in the morning and ignore your flip-flops.  But that doesn't mean your gardening efforts have to stop just yet.  You can still enjoy the look of freshly bloomed flowers in your yard even though the temperature is dropping.  Here are 6 flowers that thrive during the fall season:


These colorful flowers bloom best in the cool weather.  They come in so many vibrant colors you might have a hard time deciding which one to choose.  These flowers spread also giving you a lot ground coverage to brighten your garden.

Mums (Chrysanthemums)

Mums are a fantastic way to provide colorful fall coverage in your garden.  These plants have many varieties allowing you to design your space as you see fit.  If you prefer to plant mums every year to give a fresh and reliable source of fall color, there are a wide variety of mums to choose from.  You can also plant them with the expectation that they will return the following year (annuals) – the Autumn Red is a great example of that type of hearty mum.  Whether you prefer reds, oranges, yellows, or pinks, there's a mum out there that will suit your needs.

Lemon Queen

This perennial sunflower adds color to your garden even in colder weather.  Its delicate looking petals make you think of spring warmth and round out a fall garden nicely.


This seemingly delicate flower is as hearty as they come.  Their long stems and white petals do well in cut bouquets or as additions to a colorful yard display.  Candytufts will treat you to two blooms a year: one in spring and then again in the fall.


This flower's orange and yellow hue adds depth to your garden.  It is a hardy flower that looks as good in the garden as it does clipped and presented in a bouquet.  If you separate it every couple of years it will form a strong foundation in your garden.


These flowers are so colorful they make you stop and stare.  They produce a multitude of solid and bicolored petals.  Some of the blotches on the petals resemble faces.  They do well either in pots or planted in the ground. 

Gardening doesn't have to stop when the frost comes. There are beautiful fall flowers that can stand the cold and provide beautiful color and texture at the same time.
