13 Types of Chrysanthemum for a splash of fall color in gardens and containers

Chrysanthemum blooms are composed of many tiny flowers called florets. Some have both disk and ray florets in the bloom heads, but others lack ray or disk florets. The National Chrysanthemum Society divides bloom forms into 13 classes ranging from single daisies to multi-petalled pompons, petite to giant blooms.

Most Fragrant Sweet Peas

From a fragrance standpoint, not all sweet peas are equal. Some exude a faint scent, others are well-scented, and some are intensely fragrant. According to researchers, the fragrance of sweet peas is determined by six major components and 12 minor ones. This is the combination of these major ingredients with the minor ones, which grants sweet peas their delightful perfume.

Rudbeckia hirta (Black-Eyed Susans)

Rudbeckia hirta, commonly known as Black-Eyed Susan, Gloriosa Daisy or Yellow Oxeye Daisy is a cheerful, widespread prairie plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. It is renowned for its showy golden, orange or bicolor flowers, adorned with up to 8-20 rays and dark chocolate, dome-shaped cones. Blanketing the landscape with its dazzling bright blossoms for months, it is ridiculously easy to grow and largely trouble free.

Coreopsis (Tickseed)

Coreopsis, commonly known as "Tickseed", are prized by many gardeners for the bright colors of their flowers and their ability to put up with most garden soils. There are over 100 species available and countless hybrids, including both annuals and perennials. Most of them are low maintenance, drought tolerant and enjoy a long blooming season, generally from early summer to fall, or even longer if deadheaded.

Lathyrus odoratus (Sweet Pea)

Native to the Mediterranean region, Lathyrus odoratus (Sweet Pea) is a bushy or climbing annual noted for the delicious scent of its lovely flowers. Blooming in a wide array of enchanting colors, Sweet Peas deserve a spot in sunny borders, containers, on arches and trellises where they will happily twine and release their fabulous scent.

With finely cut leaves, slender stems, and showy daisy-like flowers, Cosmos is a long-blooming annual which belongs in every garden. Ridiculously easy to grow, fairly pest-free, and low maintenance, add this charming and graceful plant to the landscape, and you will be rewarded with plentiful blossoms and happy butterflies!
