Incorporating Fall Colors into Seasonal Flower Beds

Summer is slowly coming to an end, but that does not mean you cannot start thinking of how you want to spruce up your commercial property with fall flowers. Seasonal flower beds are a great way to show off vibrant, seasonal splashes of color to your commercial property. They are also perfect for enhancing your commercial landscape design and have more of an impact on your design than any other landscaping element. Seasonal color adds beauty and value to your property and provides your employees and customers with a feeling of festivity and excitement they will appreciate. 

So, what is the benefit of having seasonal flower displays? They are the ideal way to take your landscaping design to the next level. They provide temporary splashes of color that highlight the tone of the season. Seasonal displays will keep your property fresh during all four seasons. 

There are a variety of elements that make a seasonal flower bed stand out. First, to transform a commercial property into an eye-catching wonder, you need to make sure that the flower beds are well-kept and ever-changing with the seasons. Begin with beautiful bursts of spring bulbs in the springtime followed by lush floral beds in the summer. Once summer turns to fall, a professional landscaping company can replace the summer flowers with fall flowers that have rich tones and textures, leading into a winter wonderland of holiday flower bed displays. 

Now is a great time to start researching what kind of fall flowers to place in your flower beds to dress up your commercial properties. Here are a few suggestions:


Pansies are a cool weather favorite and are known as the colorful flower with heart-shaped centers. They have a full range of attractive colors that do not disappoint and are hearty when it comes to cool weather. Want an added bonus? They also attract beautiful butterflies for your employees and customers to enjoy. 


Petunias are known for their trumpet shape, as well as their hairy sticky branches. They bloom through the summer months and into early fall. Petunias grow into single and double blooms, ruffled or smooth petals, or striped, veined, or solid colors, so you have an array of choices to pick from. These flowers are a great attraction for hummingbirds. 


Mums come in different colors, shapes, and sizes. In fact, there are so many varieties that it can be overwhelming to know which ones to choose. Although mums thrive in the fall, the best time to plant them is in the spring. If they are planted properly, they will last for many years. Mums are also known for attracting butterflies and bees. 


Celosias are breathtaking and commonly known as cockscomb or wool flower. They work great as a border or edging around your flower bed and attract butterflies. Just like most flowers, celosias come in many colors including yellow, orange, pink, gold, purple and red, crimson, and rose.
