Long-Lasting Blooms

Give your garden continual color with these late bloomers, recommended by Sean Jancski, owner of Sean Jancski Landscape Architects in Rye.

Witch Hazel

(Hamamelis virgininiana)
Blooms between October and December
“This large native shrub does well in partial to full shade and blooms when most flowers have already come and gone. Blooms have unique form with yellow color.”

 

Autumn Joy

(Sedum)
Blooms late summer through fall
“Autumn Joy is a great dependable perennial with long-blooming flowers and interesting succulent-looking leaves that have a different texture than most others. The clusters of colored, fine, seed-like flowers change from pink to copper and add a pop of color at the end of the season.”

 

Yarrow

(Achillea millefolium)
Blooms May through September
“This perennial is available in a variety of colors and with the proper care and pruning, it can bloom all summer long, late into the fall. This is also a great plant to use for the leaf texture. The fern-like leaves add contrast in texture to
any garden.”

 

Wormwood

(Artemisia)
Blooms late summer to early fall
“Although the blooms are not very showy, this perennial’s silver foliage provides great contrast between flowering plants and green foliage. Artemisia is available in many varieties, with different textures. It maintains the silver foliage all season long.”

 

False Sunflower

(Heliopsis helianthoides)
Blooms from midsummer into fall
“This is a reliable repeat bloomer and is great to use for massing and border planting. False sunflower resembles the traditional sunflower and has many varieties to choose from.”
