Now is the time to plant flowers for great fall color. People tend to think about fall mums or asters for autumn color, but Flowering Kale is a color-packed foliage plant that blooms well into the fall season. They seem to have anti-freeze in their veins, some have been reported to last into December and January!
People are always amazed that we have a Hardy Hibiscus that will come back year after year and is hardy for South Dakota. Giant tropical type flowers bloom in August and September, filling in those bare spots in the late summer garden. Give these plenty of water and you will be rewarded with literally 100's of blooms from one plant!
Our gerber varieties of Garvinea are starting to put out some flowers. You will remember that these are the ones that are better performers in our hot South Dakota weather and will not shut down flowering when it gets warm.
Among the most cold hardy climbing roses! Produces deep pink, fragrant blooms for cutting. A natural climber that is best used on fences or arbors. Cutting faded flowers extends blooming season. Blooms on new wood; prune in late winter to early spring to promote new growth.
Like no other - a coneflower the exact color of a ripe cantaloupe! Fragrant, long lasting anemone-type blooms show off atop strong, non-floppy stems. Superior branching creates a full yet compact shape. This hardy perennial is perfect for a border or cutting garden, and tolerates drought when established.

This unique bi-color African daisy adds a long season of bright color with sunny yellow petals framing beautiful blue eyes. Compact, mounding form is perfect in patio containers and mass color plantings, or mixed perennial borders. Evergreen in frost-free areas.
The fast-growing plants bloom freely all season in landscapes and containers without cutting back, and tolerate both heat and cooler conditions very well. Flower-filled plants grow a little more mounded than original Wave, with a more controlled spread.
Plumbago is a bit of a sleeper plant in the garden: It just sits there all spring and summer, then suddenly erupts into color in late July or early August. The show starts with a display of attractive true-blue flowers that sit daintily upon the foliage. Once the blooms begin to appear, they continue on and off until hard frost.
