Southern Gardening: Good fall bedding plants make splash
Even though we’re still in a very warm August, now is the time to start thinking about fall color. Planting fall-flowering annuals can enhance your landscape’s ability to offer color right through spring. Garden centers will soon be offering some good choices of fall bedding plants, so make plans now for what you want your landscape to look like.
Telstar dianthus is one of my favorite cool-season plants. Like most members of the dianthus family, the flowers have a delicately floral fragrance. Blooms have a fringed margin and are available in single, double and semi-double petal arrangements.
