Fall is here, and with it comes a vibrant display of colors and scents in the form of beautiful fall flowers (and pumpkin spice, of course!) From deep reds to golden yellows, these blooms add a touch of warmth and beauty to the changing landscape. In this blog post, we will explore the top fall flowers and discover why we love them so much.


1. Chrysanthemums: The Queen of Fall

Chrysanthemums, or mums for short, are the quintessential fall flower. With their rich colors and intricate petals, they symbolize autumn like no other bloom. Mums come in various shades, including bold reds, deep chestnut, pumpkin orange, gleaming yellows, and a variety of purples. They are known for their longevity, making them a perfect choice for fall decor and giving a gift that will last. These bronze mums are the star of our Chic Citrine design pictured below.

2. Sunflowers: A Burst of Sunshine

When you think of fall, sunflowers might not be the first flower that comes to mind. However, these cheerful blooms are a staple of the season. With their bright yellow petals and contrasting dark centers, sunflowers bring a burst of sunshine to any fall floral arrangement. They attract birds and butterflies, adding life and movement to your garden. These focal flowers also grow in lovely green shades that give a unique twist to any design - like our Farmhouse arrangement below.

3. Dahlias: A Delicate Beauty

Dahlias are another popular choice for fall flower enthusiasts. These stunning blooms come in a wide range of varieties and colors, from soft blush and majestic purples to bold oranges and rich reds. With their intricate petals and symmetrical shapes, dahlias add an elegant touch to any space. They are also a favorite among gardeners due to their versatility and ability to thrive in cooler temperatures. Check out our Napa Sunset to bring this fall favorite into your home.

4. Zinnias: The Colorful Addition

Zinnias are a captivating choice for adding a burst of unique color to your arrangements. With their vibrant variegated hues and petal shapes, these flowers are sure to make a bold statement. Zinnias thrive in the crisp autumn air, and their hardiness allows them to continue blooming well into the fall, providing a stunning display of colors for the entire season, whether it's in your garden or in your vase at home. You are sure to find zinnias in one of our seasonal Designer’s Choice arrangements in the fall.

5. Marigolds: A Symbol of Warmth

Marigolds are often associated with warmth and positivity. These cheerful flowers come in shades of bright orange, yellow, and gold, adding a touch of magic to any design. Marigolds also have symbolic meanings in different cultures. In Mexican tradition, for example, marigolds are especially important since they are associated with the Day of the Dead and are essential for decorating gravestones and sending arrangements containing marigolds to your loved ones to help honor their deceased loved ones. Our Spellbound arrangement showcases the special glow that they bring to any design.
